Nexus Health Group is a provider of NHS Primary Care services in South London. We are a well recognised training organisation (for GPs and allied health professionals) serving a diverse list of approximately 80,000 patients from nine practice sites grouped into three geographical clusters.
Each site has an established multidisciplinary team of GPs, Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs), Paramedics, Physicians Associates, Nurses, Pharmacists, Health Care Assistants (HCAs) and local administration teams. We are focused on the development of our workforce.
Sites are supported by cluster Clinical Governance Leads and centralised back office functions providing finance, HR, administration, and data/IT support. Our organisation is led by our GP Partners and a Senior Management Team.
Our employees benefit from:
Our GP Partners are supported by a team of salaried General Practitioners. They lead our clinical and non-clinical multidisciplinary teams to delivery holistic care to our patients. Our GPs see patients face to face, but also offer telephone consultations and eConsults if that is deemed more appropriate.
Fully qualified medical doctors who are completing their specialist training in General Practice. They work under the supervision of their allocated trainer.
Physician associates are medically trained, generalist healthcare professionals, who work alongside doctors and provide medical care as an integral part of the multidisciplinary team. Physician associates are dependent practitioners working with a dedicated medical supervisor, but are able to work autonomously with appropriate support.
Our team of Paramedics work across all Nexus sites and are highly trained in dealing with acute medical issues. The usually perform acute home visits for our housebound patients.
We have a full nursing team across all our sites who have all done further training to become competent in skills needed for General Practice.
Practice nurses can carry out cervical smears, immunisations, contraception reviews, wound care and chronic disease management such as asthma, COPD and Diabetes.
Many Practice nurse appointments are available to book online and they also have telephone call appointments that can be booked for queries on nursing matters such as immunisations.
Health care assistants work with the nursing team and are trained in adult immunisations, phlebotomy, wound care, ear syringing, NHS health checks, 24 hour BP monitoring and some annual reviews.
Advanced Nurse Practitioners are experienced Nurses who have undergone several more years of advanced training in order to become Nurse Practitioners. Their role is to assess, diagnose and treat patients and they are also able to prescribe medication.
The carry out telephone triage and face to face appointments for urgent and routine matters and work closely with the GP team.
Pharmacists are responsible for the safe prescribing of complex and high risk medicines. They respond to central medicine alerts and conduct prescribing safety audits and adjust medication charts post hospital discharges.
Our osteopath specialises in neck, back and joint problems and can devise treatment plans to support a recovery from sport related injuries.
Each of our sites have a reception team who assist our pateints and service users, and are an important link between our clinical and non-clinical teams.
Our reception teams are made up of people who mostly live locally in the community, and are the first port of call for our visitors.
