The combined effects of Covid-19, elective care backlogs (many of which pre-date the current pandemic) and winter pressures have placed NHS services under more pressure than ever before. In order to address this pressure, restore normal service provision and reduce waiting lists for elective care, many trusts are looking to the private sector for support to deliver a range of healthcare services.
Although there are justifiable concerns about the impact of private practice on NHS provision, insourcing is helping to reduce NHS backlogs and waiting lists across the UK in a meaningful way. At Medinet, we provide fully managed, tailored solutions to help trusts improve capacity and reduce waiting times, quickly.
We are different from other providers because we work closely with healthcare professionals who understand the complexity of NHS operations. We value our staff, a fact which is demonstrated by the distinct clinical, administrative and financial advantages we offer over private practice.
We’re always on the lookout for experienced healthcare professionals to join our team, so we can continue to reduce waiting times for all those patiently waiting for healthcare.
As a Healthcare Professional working for Medinet, you will have the opportunity to significantly increase the number of procedures you carry out, which has been problematic for many clinicians since the onset of the pandemic. Furthermore, if you have an existing speciality then we can provide you with the opportunity to practice more general surgery, broadening your clinical horizons and increasing the scope of your practice.
However, in contrast to jobs in private practice, you will always be in control of your clinical volume: you can choose hours which suit you and reduce your workload when you need to. Our experienced healthcare teams can be deployed during weekends, evenings or bank holidays, or even 7 days a week, so as a clinician you can choose what suits you best.
You can also choose to work in different locations, and if you are required to travel, then we’ll pay your travel and accommodation costs.
At Medinet, we put our staff first, so we’ll always make sure you have time off, and won’t ask you to work longer hours than necessary. As a member of the Medinet team, you’ll also be putting your expertise to the best possible use, by helping to reduce the NHS backlog and improving outcomes for NHS patients.
One of the most significant advantages of working with Medinet over private practice is that we provide our clinicians with full administrative support, including:
- Secretarial support
- IT Software
- Room hire
- Invoicing / billing
- Chasing non-payers
You won’t face additional expenses associated with purchasing expensive equipment such as Dictaphones, or with organising complicated administrative tasks unlike other healthcare professional jobs. Furthermore, we’ll help you to complete the paperwork associated with registration and securing practicing privileges, which can be a complex and time-consuming process. In administrative terms, working for us is extremely straightforward, and far less complex than embarking on private practice or applying for jobs to work for an individual private hospital.
We take care of the details, leaving you free to carry out the work that matters most.
Our remuneration package has been designed to reflect the hard work of healthcare professionals. Not only do you get to choose where, when and within which speciality you will be working, you will also be well rewarded for your efforts.
Rates in medicolegal and private practice jobs are highly variable and unpredictable, with many clients failing to pay on time.
Working for us, you will enjoy the benefits of a regular, predictable and reliable income. You can even choose to use a limited company structure, controlling the way that you are paid to minimise your tax liability.
Working for Medinet is an excellent way to supplement an existing income, or enjoy a more flexible working experience. We offer several advantages over healthcare professional jobs in private practice.
As the original provider of ‘in-sourcing’, our model makes use of the facilities of the home trust to deliver clinical care to the very highest standard. The benefits of working with us include:
- Multiple contracts: we have numerous contracts with NHS trusts throughout the UK, so there is currently a large volume of work available
- Pan-speciality: we offer support in over 20 specialities, meaning you can stick with your specialism, or increase your skill base
- Incomparable clinical support: our team consists of Medical Directors, Specialty Advisors and Nursing/Governance support, all of whom have extensive experience in their field. If you join Medinet, you’ll receive regular supervision and appraisals, and have access to our webinars
- Work with the best: as part of the Medinet team, you can be confident that we’ll only ever ask you to work with qualified practitioners, with a minimum of 12 months’ experience in their specialist field
- Flexible working: our comprehensive service has been designed specifically with the diverse needs of the healthcare sector in mind, so unlike private practice, you get to control your workflow
- We adhere to the highest standards of clinical safety, prioritising clinical governance, safety and patient outcomes at all times
If you’re an experienced professional who is looking for a new challenge, extra income or to broaden your portfolio of skills, then we would love to have you on our team. We can offer a range of flexible opportunities to help you put your skills to use where you are needed most: reducing waiting lists and improving outcomes for patients.
