We are delighted to have been reaccredited with the social enterprise gold mark.
The gold mark is awarded to organisations who can evidence best practice across a number of business areas, including governance, business ethics, and financial transparency.
The social enterprise not-for-profit model means that any surplus is reinvested in for the benefit of patients and the wider community.
We provide integrated urgent care services including NHS111 and GP led out of hours services. We were first accredited with the gold mark in 2014, and has been successfully reaccredited following a full assessment.
We provide services across Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Essex, Norfolk and Northamptonshire.
The assessment praised our genuine commitment to involving staff in decision making, and the new learning and development opportunities we have provided for our staff.
Yvonne Taylor, our Chief Executive, said: ‘Across the organisation we take a great deal of pride in being a not-for-profit provider of healthcare within the NHS family. Retaining the social enterprise mark for our fourth year ratifies our status, and reaffirms our commitment to our patients and to prioritising social benefit.’
