Medical Transcription Service

Medical Transcription Services UK

Having difficulty finding an experienced medical typist?

You have come to the right place. All you need is mobile phone such as an Android or iPhone. Install our VoiceMaster app and start dictating. Upload your voice file securely to our DictationMaster website for typing by a British-trained UK-based medical typist.

Your dictation will always be transcribed by the same experienced medical typist (as far as possible) so they will become familiar with your dictation and your practice. Your Account Manager will be your main point of contact and will handle any queries you may have directly.  You can speak to your Account Manager whenever it is convenient. No call centres or annoying ‘leave a message after the beep’!.

Rates starting from just £1.35 per dictated minute (plus VAT) with no contract or fixed monthly fee. Discounts may be available for high volumes.

All data is transferred via a secure encrypted app and web-based programs which conform to GDPR and ISO27001 certification.

The team at WeType have over 20 years experience of outsourcing and are well placed to understand your needs – from a small GP practice to large national private healthcare providers.

Why should you consider using a medical transcription service?

Cost efficiency

Using professional medical transcriptionists will save you money.  Our transcription services are less expensive than the hourly rate of a medical secretary.  You only pay for the time you need, and you can avoid having to employ an additional member of staff (with all the financial extras that may incur, such as holiday pay, sick leave and maternity leave).

Time efficiency

As your medical practice expands, so do the demands on your medical secretary or PA.  Outsourcing typing to experts will free up your secretary to do more of the important work – looking after patients and helping you to grow your private practice.

Many clinicians without typing support, will have tried using speech recognition transcription software to dictate into their clinical notes. This is a time-heavy activity, the transcription often requires continued correction, and it’s frustrating. It’s a poor use of a clinician’s time when you consider that dictating a clinical letter will often take just thirty seconds, and a service such as ours costs from just £1.15 per minute plus VAT.

A quality medical transcription service

What happens when your medical secretary goes on holiday or has to take time out because of a family illness?  Do you hire an agency secretary (who is expensive, and doesn’t know your practice), or do you let your dictation mount up?  If you work with our service, you can rest assured that there will always be an experienced medical typist to take care of your dictation (or any medical typing backlog).  Because we become familiar with your dictation style (everyone has their little nuances), the level of accuracy is extremely high.  We’re hot on data security, which means you don’t have to worry about the security of your patients’ confidential information.

We work with you

We’re able to type directly into your practice management system, so there’s no cutting and pasting required, and because we have a fully GDPR-compliant ISO-certified dictation app (VoiceMaster), you can record on your smartphone, wherever you’re working.

Freedom to grow your practice

In order to grow a successful practice, you need time to develop relationships and market your clinical skills.  Outsourcing your medical billing, your tax and accountancy tasks, and of course your typing, is the smart way to swiftly grow your practice.

Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon

Just a quick note to say thank you for the fantastic service your company is providing. My letters arrive the next day and the quality of transcripts are top notch.

I know these “virtual” services can feel a bit impersonal sometimes, but I really do appreciate the work you do.


Mr V Gulati

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

I have been using WeType for over one year now. They are excellent. Their service and communication is of the highest standard. Their letters are almost always perfect in terms of spelling, grammar and layout. I would strongly recommend them to anyone doing private practice or medico-legal work.



Ms K King

Practice Manager

I came across WeType when looking for a UK based typing agency on an internet search.  From the beginning communication has been really great, you are not left waiting for replies to queries or requests and all emails are dealt with promptly.  We usually have our typing back within 24 hours and the standard is very good, any practice specific requests have been noted and retained in future work.  If a letter is urgent, WeType are happy for you to flag individual dictations and again, this has been very useful.  I would highly recommend them.
