Mums do the business

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.
