Introduction

The Group is committed to embedding the three pillars of ESG within our business and have established a clear strategy that is meaningful to employees, customers and investors.

Our people

Medica represents an attractive career development opportunity for Radiologists.  As a long-established market-leading provider we are the perfect partner not only as a regular source of supplementary income, but also to support the development of expertise in clinical sub-specialisms. In this way, working for Medica allows already highly-qualified experts to build a portfolio approach to their career and benefit from a breadth and depth of interesting casework and regular feedback as part of the continuous audit process.

“One of Medica’s biggest assets is the workforce. The Group demonstrates its commitment by providing development opportunities and support for each and every individual. I’m proud to work with such a talented and awesome team.”
