In a nutshell:
Here’s a page to tell you all about Virgin Care, the company that makes Carers Club happen!
- What Virgin Care does
- Where I can expect to see them
- What services they provide
We provide health and care services across the country. Since 2006 we’ve treated more than 6 million people, making sure that everyone feels the difference.
Part of the Virgin Group, we make a real difference to people’s lives through our health and care services.
Since we started on our journey we’ve been focused on delivering high quality care, good value and the fantastic customer service you’d expect from Virgin.
We’ve invested in innovative technologies, using our vast experience to deliver improvements and innovations to community and primary care services across the country. We were the first to invest in a secure, truly mobile technology which freed our nurses from office bases and gave them a third more time to spend with their patients.
We were the first NHS provider to ask the people using our services how likely they would be to recommend them, using the feedback we got to make more than 1,000 changes each and every month across all of our services as a direct result.
Now, more than a decade into our journey we’re still helping everyone feel the difference.
We’re incredibly proud of the work we’ve done. You can hear more about Virgin Care from Sir Richard Branson and our Chief Executive Bart Johnson, and read about Sir Richard Branson’s pride for Virgin Care in his blog here.
