One Medical Group is expanding from its Yorkshire support centre to Westminster, London, as it looks to move into new regions.
The new office opens this week and talks are already in place with local stakeholders to help One Medical Group establish a significant presence across London and the south.
Richard Walne, a former director of an NHS Foundation Trust has been appointed to oversee the new London office and lead this part of the group’s plans for growth.
Rachel Beverley-Stevenson, chief executive of One Medical Group, said:
“In our tenth year of business, 2014 is already a very exciting year for One Medical Group.
“We have started strongly, with our patient-first approach securing the contract to run the new NHS Urgent Care Centre in Bracknell, Berkshire and we’re extremely lucky to have Richard join the team and drive further expansion in London and the South.”
His role as business development director at One Medical Group will consist of providing support and knowledge of the local area and conveying the company’s new integrated premises and service delivery offering across the South.
Mr Walne said:
“This is a superb opportunity for me to combine over 30 years’ experience and my contacts in the health industry, to grow the One Medical Group offering in the heart of London’s health economy and beyond.”
With vast experience as an independent consultant, Richard’s healthcare experience includes clients such as NHS providers, charities and commercial organisations.
One Medical Group is an integrated healthcare solutions provider which delivers both award-winning premises developments and facilities management through One Medical Property and nationally recognised innovative healthcare services through One Medical Care.
