We’re proud of our social enterprise status and our ability to provide our patients with access to health care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
As a not for profit organisation, any surplus that we make is reinvested straight back into our people and patients, rather than being distributed to shareholders. This means we’re part of the NHS family, enhancing it through the added social value we bring.
Social enterprises currently provide around £1.5 billion worth of health and social care services to the UK, and we’re proud to be part of the sector. Not only are we members of Social Enterprise UK, we are also holders of the Social Enterprise Gold Mark. As a Gold Mark holder, we’re independently assessed against important factors such as governance and financial transparency. We were the very first organisation to be awarded this prestigious accolade, and are currently one of only five social enterprises who hold the Gold Mark.
We produce a social impact report on an annual basis, which gives an overview of the social impact that we have delivered. You can view our latest report here.
We believe in empowering our people to be their best at work, and creating an inclusive culture, with a sense of belonging. To find out more about our work on inclusiveness and belonging, click here.
