We're Medway Community Healthcare (MCH for short), an award winning social enterprise and Community Interest Company established in 2011. We work with lots of local partners to support and improve local communities, keeping people healthy and making sure that we are part of a wider picture of all-round health and wellbeing in Medway and beyond. We are one of the largest employers in the area with over 1,300 staff.
We're incredibly proud of what we do, and all of our achievements reflect the passion, dedication and commitment demonstrated by our brilliant, hardworking, passionate staff. These qualities are supported by our values of:
- working in partnership
- delivering quality and value
- being caring and compassionate
These values underpin everything we do with our staff, users of our services, and partners. We work together to ensure that we deliver a consistently high quality experience, and strive towards our vision of a successful, vibrant community interest company, that benefits the communities we serve.
Our purpose is to provide community services across Kent, Medway and beyond and our commitment is to 'lead the way in excellent healthcare'.
As a social enterprise any profits we make are used to further improve our services or invested in local communities via our charity Medway Cares. We are owned and run by our employees on behalf of the community, and trade as a business for social purposes.
We have also invested in other social enterprises whose social objectives are aligned to ours, and whose services or products could benefit our patients. And we have taken on many apprentices since 2010 and where possible, we buy our goods and services from local companies.
Our service users, local stakeholders and our staff as co-owners, have the opportunity to ensure that we are able to:
- deliver services according to need and not perceived demand
- deliver innovative ways to provide care closer to home
- deliver services in a more flexible, productive and efficient manner
- deliver services that respect every patient's dignity and right to privacy.
