THREE MOTH­ERS who met at the gates of Mo­riah Jewish Day School and started a busi­ness out of a gar­den shed have been nom­i­nated for a na­tional busi­ness award.

Tracey Dunn, El­lie Blacher and Martine Reuben cre­ated MediAc­counts, a billing ser­vice for pri­vate med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als, in 2013.

Ms Dunn, 44, said her ex­pe­ri­ence as a per­sonal as­sis­tant for a con­sul­tant made her aware there was a gap in the mar­ket.

She said: “Doc­tors are very busy and need more help with billing pa­tients.”

The trio have since moved from Ms Blancher’s shed and now work as part of a team of 12 out of an of­fice in northwest Lon­don.

The com­pany has been short­listed in the Lon­don and South SME Growth cat­e­gory at the HSBC For­ward Ladies Awards.

Ms Dunn, who is a mem­ber of Pin­ner United Sy­n­a­gogue, said: “It feels great. We are three work­ing mums and I think we are proof that you can have a job and raise a fam­ily. We started with one doc­tor we now have more than 100.”

The award win­ner will be an­nounced on Septem­ber 15.
