Creative planning by a small group of GPs in Enfield who wanted to make a difference, a desire to work together for the benefit of their patients and staff. All having different skills, their surgeries offering different services, looking at innovative ways of bringing care closer to home, offering patients new ways of accessing healthcare to suit their needs and lifestyles was the vision.
In April 2018 their vision came together, and Medicus Health Partners was formed and launched with 11 practices within the Super Practice, the strength and forward thinking of the partnership attracted other surgeries and in May 2019 there are now 15 surgeries and 36 Partners within Medicus Health Partners. The success of the Partnership did not stop there, winning a contract to deliver support services into care homes and work closely with the CCG and Federation in Enfield to maximise what can be achieved by working together to improve healthcare provision across the borough.
New opportunities for careers within the Partnership gave staff new options, GPs with special interests are able to extend their knowledge, work with teams who deliver community services and clinical specialties such as minor surgery and elderly care.
Education plays a major part in the success of the partnership, Medicus is able to offer new GPs, Nurses and HCP and those training a wealth of opportunities to gain knowledge working alongside the partners and senior HCP in Medicus sites and clinics.
Our patients are now able to benefit from being able to attend any Medicus site, book clinic appointments within the partnership instead of attending hospital. The Medical Director says:- we are proud of our progress so far, but we are not finished yet, we want to make things even better for our patients and will be launching new services and adopting technology so patients can choose of how they request and receive healthcare in the future. Our vision is to work with other services to bring even more options closer to our patients.
Our Team brings a wealth of experience in clinical healthcare and management. Working together Medicus Health Partners has harnessed expertise in many areas and this is set to expand in the future. If you would like to join us – please review the current vacancies and send in your CV
