Job Details

About us:

Since 2004, Medvivo has built an excellent reputation for providing round the clock care services that are second to none. We are proud of our Outstanding CQC rating and we work hard to maintain the commitment to our Investors in People accreditation.

  • Each base has a fully stocked car and a driver in order to complete home visits
  • We use SystmOne: working OOH requires very little additional technical knowledge to working in practice

Medvivo Group provides clinical services, telecare and
Technology Enabled Care Solutions.

Medvivo offers a truly integrated solution to a broad range of health and social care needs, delivering excellence of care, innovation and the highest quality. 

We are a provider of integrated care services which include over 11 years of experience delivering out of hours GP services, a single point of access, crisis response services and a wide range of technology enabled care solutions (TECs). We are one of the few companies that is accredited to the TSA Code of Practice for both Telecare and Telehealth.

Our history

Wiltshire Medical Services was founded in 2004 in response to the change to the GP contract to run GP out of hours services for North Wiltshire PCG. Consolidation and reconfiguration provided the opportunity for Wiltshire Medical Services (WMS) to develop its offering and the company matured into a respected and trusted provider of quality services with the flexibility to meet the changing needs of the Wiltshire health community.

WMS was successful in the tendering for an Urgent Care service across the whole of Wiltshire in 2010 and this provided the springboard for the next phase of the company’s development. The dynamic nature of WMS enabled it to embrace the recent changes and develop an integrated health and social care service. This was initially in the form of a Telecare Monitoring and Mobile Response Service for Wiltshire Council supporting their Help to Live @ Home initiative and more recently in delivering a joint health/social care rapid response service in order to prevent inappropriate admission and facilitate early discharge from hospital.

In 2013 Wiltshire Medical Services received investment from Fidelity Group and Medvivo Group Ltd was created.

In June 2014, Medvivo Group acquired Dorchester-based Medvivo Careline from the Magna Housing Group and combined with Medvivo's telecare services to create a larger, more robust organisation, with two TSA accredited call centres.

In December 2019, Appello, the UK’s largest telecare monitoring provider, acquired Medvivo Careline Ltd, the telecare and out of hours call monitoring service from Medvivo Group.
