Founded in 2004, Medica Group has become the market-leading teleradiology business in the UK, working with c.100 hospitals and retaining customers at an enviable rate. The quality of systems, colleagues and nearly 400 radiologist partners, and the clinically-driven approach they take are critical to this success: hospital groups across the country rely on the business on their patients’ behalf.
Medica offers the highest quality service underpinned by an excellent track record of innovation in radiology clinical services. The company has invested heavily in continuous improvement, innovation, IT and has now developed a wide range of clinical governance processes that are regarded as best in class, awarded and retained ISAS accreditation, and commended in an NHS England Quality Assurance review.
The teleradiology market has continued to develop in the UK throughout 2018 and as the premium quality provider, Medica has seen demand from its clients grow continuously as they seek cost-effective solutions to complex clinical requirements. Medica’s core business strategy continues to focus on partnership with NHS Trusts with a growing demand for diagnostic reporting, limited in-house capacity and ongoing financial constraints. By investing in technology and clinical excellence Medica seeks to provide a timely and high-quality clinical service to its clients’ patients and bridge geographical and specialist gaps across the UK.
Medica’s Clinical Director will, together with the Medical Director provide Clinical Leadership across a wide spectrum of clinical responsibilities. These will include clinical governance, clinical incident investigation, clinical engagement with service users (especially clinical directors) and with Medica’s growing reporter community. They will have opportunity to influence clinical service development and delivery, which will further develop the high quality, safe and effective services in the context of national best practice and innovation. Medica has a track record of innovative clinical service development and aims to continue this with the emergence of AI.
The incoming Clinical Director will be reporting directly to the Medical Director but will also develop working relationships with members of the Executive Team. As such, Medica is seeking an experienced Radiologist with the drive to learn and continuously improve. This new post represents an exciting opportunity to collaborate and influence the clinical strategy within the organisation.
The right candidate will have established themselves as a clinical leader of some stature, with clinical leadership experience potentially gained in a hospital environment. They will bring with them experience of clinical radiology management, including clinical governance experience and an understanding of clinical and professional standards. Whilst they don’t necessarily need to have worked previously in the private or independent sector, they will bring commercial instincts, appetite and potentially a wider breadth of experience.
Self-motivated and team-orientated, this person will bring forward both existing capability and the potential to develop with the company, combining their curiosity and drive to take the business forward.
Remuneration will be competitive, in line with the seniority of the post and agreed with the preferred candidate.
