June Edition of Stay Connected

High performance teams stay connected designated

Hello and welcome to the June edition of our newsletter.

June is a month we have been anticipating as, hopefully, lockdown restrictions continue to ease and we can start to plan for the summer months, both personally and professionally. On that note, we have a feature this month on a highly recommended travel advisor who can assist you with all of your travel needs and ensure you are well informed and protected from the ever-changing travel rules and regulations.

This month we share an article by Jane Braithwaite, Designated Managing Director, looking at the ways we can create high performing teams in the workplace, taking inspiration from the England rugby team.

May Newsletter

Welcome to May’s edition of Stay Connected.

We are feeling very positive about the month of May although it is still a bit cool for our liking, especially given that socialising needs to take place outdoors.

We read Laing Buisson’s new report, published during April, into the UK’s private self-pay market with great interest. The report describes an evidenced growth in the self-pay market. They predict that growth from insured patients will remain static for the foreseeable future but confidence in self pay is high, with 52% of those surveyed expecting the market to grow by 10-15% over the next 3 years.

We are seeing an increase in patient activity and the number of calls our Medical PA team is handling increasing week by week. Our recruitment team are also incredibly busy, recruiting new positions for a number of our clients. We see this as a real sign of confidence returning with private healthcare rebuilding
post-Covid and planning for growth.

If you would like to know more about our HR and recruitment services please contact Hannah Smith via email at hannah@designatedgroup.com or 020 7952 1437.

Welcome to the February’s edition of Stay Connected.

In these challenging times patients are more anxious than ever about their healthcare and this month, as we approach
Valentine’s Day, we want to share some love for our team of Medical PAs. Our Medical PAs have been working tirelessly throughout the Covid crisis, reassuring patients, cancelling clinics or changing face to face clinics to video clinics and managing the additional administration involved in Covid testing for patients.

Our Medical PAs know that one of the most critical ways in which they can relieve anxiety for patients is ensuring their calls are always answered and their questions and concerns handled with empathy and care. During January our team has answered 97% patients calls which is an outstanding call answering rate.

Our team’s great efforts have not gone unnoticed and our consultants are of course delighted. A huge thank you to each and every one of our Medical PA’s.
