Innovation and Learning

At South Coast Medical Group, we believe in continuous learning and we are committed to finding innovative solutions to healthcare issues that we face as a community.

Award-winning innovation

We have been awarded Integration Innovation of the Year in the NAPC 2018 Awards. It’s a very exciting acknowledgement of what we do differently at South Coast Medical Group and testament to our team’s dedication to providing the very best care for our patients through innovation.

The awards, run by the National Association of Primary Care (NAPC), celebrate high standards of care, dedication, integration and innovation and recognise people, teams and organisations that have gone the extra mile to provide improved patient care for their communities.

Innovation in Healthcare Awards

We were voted runner-up and Highly Commended at the UK national Grünenthal Commissioning Awards 2013 for “Innovation in Healthcare” for being the first company to introduce an MRI Machine into a Primary Care (GP Surgery) setting.

The annual awards, sponsored by the German pharmaceutical company Grünenthal, aim to recognise excellence and reward innovative projects which could lead to a significant improvement in patient care.

Education and training

Our commitment to high quality healthcare means that we frequently have trainee doctors and medical students from Imperial College London and Southampton University, observing and assisting our doctors. Students only attend consultations with permission from the patient.
