Part of something bigger
ID Clinical Services is a division of ID Medical Group – the UK’s leading multi-discipline healthcare recruiter. We call on our resources and expertise to quickly source and deploy solutions to meet your requirements. Our Clinical Services division, providing innovation and service improvement, has been able to support our clients across elective care in reducing waiting times, backlogs and operational pressures through the use of our ring-fenced and best in class clinical insourcing teams.
By working seamlessly with our clients across specialisms during the week and at weekends those demands on services has been reduced. The quality of provision has been maintained and where necessary improved and our robust quality controls and audits ensure that patient satisfaction is enhanced. As an example at one major University Trust with multi-site clinics, we have been audited as part of our measurement on patient satisfaction at 100%.
Additionally, at some locations we have worked with clients to enable patient pathways to be adjusted and realigned thus reducing demand and waiting times and providing cost improvement in service delivery.
As a national provider, we have the reach, regional presence and local focus, providing temporary, fixed and permanent medical professionals to the NHS.
All of the above ensures that you can be confident in our ability to deliver a range of high-quality clinical services to support trusts and health boards across the UK at any time.
