The market leader in the provision of teleradiology services to the NHS
Medica Group currently offers two primary services to hospital radiology departments to meet demand and supply imbalance in urgent and non urgent settings: NightHawk and Elective (previously Routine) which includes cross-sectional (CT/MR) and plain film (PF) examinations. These services provide hospital radiology departments, amongst other benefits, the ability to manage their workflow more efficiently and provide rapid access to specialist Consultant Radiologists, which may not be available to that hospital at the relevant time or at all.
Out of hours emergency reporting service which is focused on improved patient outcomes and short turnaround times, which average 25 minutes and typically provides reporting on CT scans.
Both for less urgent daytime reporting, as well as access to expertise in particular sub-specialisms. Elective covers a combination of CT and MR scans (both forms of cross-sectional scan) and Plain Film examinations typically with a 48 hour turnaround time.

Medica Group was established in January 2004. In 2007, Nuffield Health acquired 50 per cent. of the Group, acquiring further stakes in 2011 and in 2013 before selling a majority shareholding to CBPE in a management buy-out in May 2013. The Company became a listed business in 2017, entering the London Stock Exchange in March of that year.
As a rapidly growing business, Medica Group has significantly developed the operational aspects of its business over recent years. In 2012, the Group achieved ISO 9001, ISO 27001 and CQC accreditations. In 2014, the Group relocated its Sussex head office from Battle to Hastings to help facilitate its growth. In the same year, the Group established its Clinical Advisory Group, as well as bringing in-house the out of hours call-handling team to provide greater control over the NightHawk process.
The Group has established its own software development department and has expanded its physical locations by opening reporting centres globally. Medica Group has also achieved accreditation from the The Quality Standard for Imaging Scheme (formerly “ISAS”), which is the only nationally recognised accreditation scheme for the diagnostic imaging services sector in the UK and is licensed by both the Royal College of Radiologists and the Society of Radiographers.
We have built a strong reputation through the provision of fast, responsive, quality assured and cost-effective services.
