This vision is achieved through the entire Arch team living our values every day, in our interactions with our patients, partners and each other. This has enabled us to build up a strong and supportive, and now award-winning workplace culture. Just one of the many reasons you might want to have a look to see if we have any current vacancies.
A surgery like no other. At Arch you can build meaningful relationships with patients and support them through challenges from beginning to end.
Yes it's tough, but it's one of the most rewarding roles I’ve ever undertaken, plus you get to work with an amazing team.
ARCH stands for Accessible Restorative Community Health. The name reflects the belief of the team that primary care should move way beyond the treatment of symptoms into community oriented care which focuses on the whole person and promotes restoration, wellness and resilience.
ACCESSIBLE is not simply about an open door, simple registration and a flexible appointment system, though those are important. It’s about a professional, welcoming and non-judgemental culture amongst our entire team so that people who may struggle to access formal services are able to visit their GP with confidence and receive the treatment which they need.
RESTORATIVE is the recognition that each person is a unique and complex individual and is always more than a presenting health issue. Arch will always seek, as far as is possible, to gain an understanding of the whole person and help them to aim for the best possible physical and mental health outcomes.
COMMUNITY is key to every person’s health and wellbeing. Not every problem can be addressed through a consultation with the doctor or nurse, the prescription pad cannot replace our need for positive interactions with fellow human beings. Arch recognises that many, many local groups, organisations, businesses and people play a critical role in the health of our people.
HEALTH is our business, our aim is improving the health of the poorest fastest through outstanding specialist health care and through proactive engagement with the wider community. We believe that homeless people should have access to healthcare which is at least as good as that which is provided for the rest of the population.
