Welcome to Medicus Health Partners
Medicus Health Partners is the largest GP Partnership in Enfield, delivering services to over 92,000 patients from its 14 locations. All locations work on the same systems and our patients can access services, attend appointments and get help wherever they see the Medicus Logo. In January 2021 all 15 GP contracts merged and Medicus Health Partners is now fully integrated and operates as a single contract.
Creative planning by a small group of GPs in Enfield who wanted to make a difference, a desire to work together for the benefit of their patients and staff. All having different skills, their surgeries offering different services, looking at innovative ways of bringing care closer to home, offering patients new ways of accessing healthcare to suit their needs and lifestyles was the vision.
In April 2018 their vision came together, and Medicus Health Partners was formed and launched with 11 practices within the Super Partnership, the strength and forward thinking of the partnership attracted other surgeries and in November 2020 there are now 15 surgeries and 36 GP Partners within Medicus Health Partners. The success of the Partnership did not stop there, winning a contract to deliver support services into care homes and work closely with the CCG and Federation in Enfield to maximise what can be achieved by working together to improve healthcare provision across the borough. In 2019 the contract to deliver SAS services across NCL was awarded to Medicus Health Partners.
Support for COVID-19 has also been a focus, running the GP Assessment Centre at Chase Farm Hospital and opening one of the 3 Vaccine Hubs in Enfield at the Carlton House location has given the Partnership a wealth of learning to share with colleagues.
The Partners are proud of the progress so far, but they are not finished yet, they want to make things even better for patients and will be launching new services and adopting technology so patients can choose how they request and receive healthcare in the future. Our vision is to work with other services to bring even more options closer to our patients.
Medicus Health Partners is also part of Enfield Unity Primary Care Network, working with other practices in the area to share resources and support our patients.
We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment.
Our PATCHS service allows you to securely message the practice to ask your doctor a question or request an appointment. Your doctor is then able to reply to you and ….
