Primecare is one of the leading commercial providers of primary health care services in the UK. We work in partnership with organisations to provide a range of effective and efficient health care services. Our health care services are commissioned by many organisations including NHS primary care trusts, Local Health Boards in Wales, GP commissioners, police forces, prisons and other secure establishments, as well as commercial organisations. Our aim is always to provide the highest quality of care to patients, carers and their families, and improve access to health care services. Our headquarters are in Birmingham and we have branches across the country.
We have excellent clinical response and primary care centres that have enabled us to be the highest performing provider of urgent GP services in the country. We are commissioned by Primary Care Trusts in England and Local Health Boards in Wales.
We work in partnership with GP practices, A&E; departments and NHS Direct to ensure that patients get the right health information and treatment at the right time, working through the night and at weekends. We also support some GP practices with their telephone calls during the day and provide primary care services for patients when their practices are closed for training.
Our highly trained doctors, nurses and care co-ordinators help with around 1.6 million calls from patients every year.
In some areas we provide a single point of access for a number of different services including GP out of hours care, emergency social care and dentistry.
We are delighted to be running among the first NHS walk-in health centres that are open 8am – 8pm, seven days a week.
We pride ourselves on offering fast access to convenient health care appointments with excellent teams of clinicians. We also run GP practices.
We provide health care services in a number of prisons and other secure settings including immigration centres and secure training centres.
We offer the full range of primary care services as well as services to avoid the need to transfer patients to hospital, mental health inreach and Integrated Drug Treatment Services.
Our urgent health care services that provide GP care throughout the night and at weekends and bank holidays also cover prisons in some areas.
Primecare has operated in the police market for the last 10 years, offering quality services to city, rural, large and smaller force areas. Primecare currently provides forensic healthcare services to the West Midlands Police Force. In addition, we also provide telephone advice services for a range of court based schemes and a Forensic Medical Examiner service for the British Transport Police. Within our Police management and operational teams we have a depth of experience unmatched by other private providers in this field.
Primecare is experienced in running a number of NHS dental practices.
We also run telephone assessment for patients with emergency dental problems in some parts of the UK.
We opened two new dental practices for Primary Care Trusts in 2010 and will be opening a further three in 2011. Each of these schemes is part of the national Dental Access Programme.
Primecare Locums is a clinical and medical staff agency. We support NHS health care providers, GP practices, out of hours services and prisons with high quality clinicians for short or long-term placements.
