Thank you for considering working with me and other members of the clinical team at DMC Healthcare.

We have developed strong support networks across high-risk areas such as medicines management, clinical governance, safeguarding and business intelligence, so that you can focus on improving health outcomes by taking care of patients.

DMC has come a long way from a single practice in Dulwich to having dozens of employees nationwide across a number of specialties. Our surgeries are led locally and respond to the local needs of the population – we cater for young, urban populations as well as older populations in remote, rural areas, so you will be able to develop an unmatched breadth of expertise whilst working with us.

We are constantly working on service improvement and welcome your views on how to improve our systems and processes. If you’re interested in this challenge, please get in touch with our recruitment team for an informal conversation with me.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
