Read our Client Testimonials:
As a specialist private pain management clinic, we had little resource to support the mandated compliance requirements for appraisal and revalidation so we reached out to MEDSU, who are the governance experts. We weren’t disappointed!
From the first time we liaised with them, their advice and guidance has been perfect! If I have a query, they are always quick to respond. Their team are well-trained and knowledgeable and always give us an appropriate answer. I appreciate their attention to detail and their support and expertise; not only for my own compliance as a doctor on the specialist register, but that our governance obligations as an independent healthcare provider clinic are extremely well managed. The support MEDSU provide us in dealing with regulatory bodies is faultless and their online appraisal technology is fantastic to use. I trust MEDSU 100%, am delighted with the service they provide and happily recommend them to other independent clinics seeking such outstanding governance support.
As the UK’s leading provider of online psychiatric mental healthcare, with a globally distributed workforce it was vital that Psychiatry UK aligned itself with the right choice of governance provider.
MEDSU was the obvious choice. An innovative heathcare governance provider delivering a unique combination of expertise, cutting edge technology and quality. As we’ve grown over the last eight years MEDSU have continued to not only meet but anticipate our needs. We know we’re in safe hands, and with MEDSU taking care of the myriad of goverance and regulatory obligations for our licenced professionals we can focus on the business of delivering great patient care
I have been involved with MEDSU for a number of years regarding appraisals and revalidation and they have always been contactable and extremely helpful.
I cannot recommend MEDSU enough in their attention to detail and for their service and assistance in any matters.
Having partnered with MEDSU for over 7 years now, their service has been invaluable to us as a growing locum agency setting.
Not only do they offer a good value service for our locums, they are always innovating their software platform to find new ways to make appraisal preparation easier for doctors than ever before. MEDSU have been a guiding influence too, in the way we support our locums with medical governance and the RO and his team have demonstrated new ways of going the extra mile to support one of our doctors through a hugely challenging time. We know our doctors and our designated body is in safe hands with MEDSU and it is always a pleasure dealing with their firiendly team.
We are a special inpatient eating disorder hospital serving Yorkshire and Humber. We had no doubts about working with MEDSU.
Prior to finding them, we managed our Appraisal and Revalidation requirements through a range of methods. I would describe working with MEDSU as ‘pain-free’. I have found working with them easy and straightforward. Things that really stand out for us is their organisation, their helpfulness, they are up-front and transparent. Our doctors report working positively with MEDSU and find them straight forward, organised and open. Knowing that our governance is well looked after is a weight off, as well as a time-saver for all involved! I would encourage other organisations to get in touch with MEDSU and am happy to tell them of our experience.
Cambian Group provides specialist education and residential services for vulnerable children across England and part of our clinical offerings, we employed a small group of psychiatrists who support services where this is needed.
We have been lucky to be working with such a competent organisation such as MEDSU since 2019, through an agreed Service Level of Agreement, where as a designated body, MEDSU has been supporting us in meeting the required standards for a named Responsible Officer (RO). As a designated body, we recognised the importance in providing our doctors regular appraisals and support for revalidation. Through MEDSU we have been able to ensure robust governance arrangement is in place in order to meet the statutory functions of both the RO and the designated body. MEDSU`s experience in this area and their professional relationship with key stakeholder such as NHS England, gave us peace of mind for in ensuring high standard of practice and safety.
We are a care group with 4 Residential Homes, 1 Nursing Home, 2 Nurseries and 2 Hospitals, with further developments in the pipeline.
We previously managed Appraisal and Revalidation in-house but as we grew it became more difficult to for us to oversee. We didn’t have any concerns about working with MEDSU. They are very quick and efficient and their communication is excellent! We have more time now to concentrate on what we need to do for the growth of our business. We also have a professional service looking after our doctors and they have someone specific to speak to which has saved us a lot of time around time management. If you’re thinking about using MEDSU, I’d say do it – you won’t regret it.
At Provide Medical, we deliver specialist support for short, mid-term and permanent placements for both the NHS and private healthcare sectors.
We have developed a strong reputation for high-quality recruitment services as an NHS supplier working under Crown Commercial Services, Health Trust Europe and the Collaborative Procurement Partnership Frameworks. It was therefore vital that we aligned ourselves to an appraisal and governance provider who could offer a fully-inclusive, end-to-end service and a like-minded culture. Since partnering with MEDSU in 2014, not only have they met our expectations, they have saved us countless hours (and therefore costs) through their unrivalled governance service. Their competence, communications, time-saving appraisal technology, enhanced appraisal service and dedicated customer support provision, along with ability to empathise with our doctors is outstanding. MEDSU work seamlessly with Provide’s interest to uphold high standards of professional support and we are delighted with them as a trusted partner
All of our Doctors have found the system easy to use.
They have also fed back to us that it is easier to upload supporting evidence and found that the auto save function has stopped them losing important updates and information. The automatic reminders for appraisal due dates built into the solution has dramatically reduced the workload for our Revalidation Officer making it easier to achieve timely appraisals. I have also found that MEDSU provide a very high standard of Appraisers which we have utilized, to augment our appraiser capacity.
