“The main differences between the NHS and Concierge Medical really is time – time with patients; time for considered well thought-out clinical decision making; time for reflection on consultations; time to review current evidence base and guidance; time to spend with colleagues discussing patients and building important working relationships and more time with my own family.
Being part of Concierge Medical means I can enjoy being able to manage my own diary and working week. I also enjoy working with lovely, kind and like-minded doctors, as well as being able to spend the time I need to spend with my patients to ensure the best care and rapport for a meaningful, professional doctor-patient relationship.
Everything we do is focused on making the best possible experience for our patients, delivering safe, effective healthcare tailored to our patient’s needs.
It is a move I would recommend to any GP thinking of making the change.”
Dr Lucy Foster
“For me, the attraction of Concierge Medical was about providing continuity of care, having the time to spend with your patients and the opportunity of a better work/life balance.
Working in the NHS is incredibly intense. You know that when you finish with your patient it isn’t the end of your day as you have a mountain of paperwork to deal with. With Concierge, the main thing is looking after your patients. There is much more job satisfaction when you can build a better relationship with them – it’s the whole idea of ‘cradle to grave’ care.
Working at Concierge has definitely improved my job satisfaction. I’m able to spend as much time as needed with each patient, without feeling like there are five other patients waiting for me. I can listen, ask questions and take the time I need.”
