Any viruses found are automatically quarantined, and an alert is raised to enable investigation to be carried-out. Servers are tightly firewalled, with only essential ports being open to the public. Intrusion detection software is run on servers to flag unusual activity or activity that may compromise security. Operating System security patches are checked on a regular basis and automatically downloaded.

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
Approach to resilience
The network infrastructure provides multiple levels of redundancy through the use of multiple bandwidth providers, and failover hardware for key systems. Failing services are reported and automatically restarted. Data is replicated to a standby environment and nightly backups are retained for one week.
Outage reporting
The service is monitored from multiple points-of-presence. This monitoring verifies site and system availability, as well as system components. Our partner knows instantly if any of the services go down and are alerted immediately; they notify ID Medical via telephone, who then contact clients via their preferred communication channel within agreed timeframes.

Social Value

Fighting climate change

Fighting climate change

We are committed to reducing our environmental impacts and operating in a more sustainable way to support our clients achieve Net Zero. By extending our existing commitments such as reducing paper usage and energy consumption we remove or minimise any process that is wasteful.
The key means of reducing the environmental impact of the service that we are able to influence is travel-related emissions. We offer a Cycle to Work Scheme, providing savings on new bikes, promoting the use of cycling for journeys, which has both health and environmental benefits.
By encouraging walking or cycling to work, where possible, and the use of public transport and car sharing schemes we aim to reduce travel distances, time and cost, and associated energy use, which has a positive reduction on our environmental footprint. We encourage the use of remote meeting facilities, i.e. MS Teams/Zoom, wherever practical.
Our published Carbon Reduction Plan is available via our website:
Covid-19 recovery

Covid-19 recovery

We fully understand that patients waiting for consultation/treatment are already anxious, and the advent of Covid-19 and lockdown restrictions has exacerbated these feelings. Our capability and experience in providing workforce solutions supports efficient rostering, booking and workforce management of substantive, flexible and temporary workers for our clients. Backed up by our vast database of healthcare professionals ensures we support our clients with the healthcare staffing required to support and treat patients.
Our technologies enable the effective and efficient tracking of Covid cases within the workforce providing senior leaders and management with visibility of workforce Covid cases to enable better planning and contingency strategies.
Remote working
We offer remote working for increasing numbers of roles within our business, having established how successful this has been during the Covid pandemic. The roles are advertised nationally, via a variety of routes including social media, opening up job opportunities to a wider cohort of people nationwide.
Individuals can benefit from a flexible working pattern, bringing benefits in terms of their health and wellbeing. Roles recruited may cover a range of skills and experience across technical, customer service, administrative and management functions.
Tackling economic inequality

Tackling economic inequality

We work in partnership with all clients and aim to bring a strategic contribution to the local communities within the areas they serve. We are aware longer term contracts have greater potential for delivering social value, including tackling economic inequality. We embrace and look forward to establishing long-lasting successful relationships, engaging with relevant stakeholders to fully understand the local social value and environmental aims and targets, and to identify and agree areas where we can deliver the greatest social value.
One way we and our partners support increasing income into the locality is by enabling local workers to easily book shifts. They would usually be expected to spend a proportion of their earned money locally in a wide variety of ways, from housing, utilities, shopping including food, household items and clothing, supporting their local economy and community.
They typically use local amenities such as sports facilities, cinemas, restaurants etc. keeping revenue within the area. This provides the requirement for jobs for individuals and companies supplying the goods and services which in turn supports the local economy to thrive.
Our supply chain includes working with local partners as much as possible and we would seek to identify partners that actively recruit and place workers within client regions. This helps retain spend locally, supporting the local economy. Recruiting locally also helps limit the environmental impacts associated with long distance travel.
We can consider and assess how we can use your buildings and spaces to support communities, with appropriate actions and initiatives being agreed during service mobilisation.
Experience informs our view that by working in partnership we can enhance client credentials by maximising the value bought to the community you serve.
Equal opportunity

Equal opportunity

Equality, diversity, inclusion and human rights encompass all our aims, objectives and actions addressing inequalities and promoting diversity in healthcare and employment. The key principle of diversity and inclusion is that it belongs to everyone and that every individual has the right to be treated with respect and dignity, as aligned to our core values.
We have a strong Equality, Diversity & Human Rights policy in place that includes Dignity at Work, Bullying & Harassment and Discrimination. We have a strong commitment to providing training for all colleagues in equal opportunities practice.
We treat everyone equally irrespective of sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, age, disability, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, political beliefs or membership or non-membership of a Trade Union or spent convictions, and all colleagues have an obligation to respect and act in accordance with the policy.
We actively avoid stipulating any unnecessary requirements which would exclude a higher proportion of a particular gender, sexual orientation, age, religion or racial group or which would exclude disabled job applicants; and we avoid prescribing any requirements as to marital or civil partnership status.
We ensure we do not discriminate unlawfully with each individual assessed only in accordance with their merits, qualifications and abilities to satisfactorily perform the relevant duties required.
We do not accept instructions or engage with clients that indicate an intention to discriminate unlawfully.
We are committed to ensuring our services are not discriminatory, enabling equality of access and provision, and meeting legal requirements under the Equality Act 2010 and the specific elements of the Public Sector Equality Duty.


We consider the wellbeing of our own staff, both those employed in the managing and operation of our business and those who work in our clients premises to provide their services.
We work with our clients to support the provision of community facilities and social activities, exploring the use of their buildings and spaces for community groups. An example of this could be using clients restaurant areas for local groups to meet, this would be especially beneficial for organisations supporting elderly or disabled persons, as hospital facilities typically have easy access for people with mobility issues.
We offer a range of employee benefits for colleagues including those that promote health and wellbeing benefits. These are regularly reviewed and added to.
For example, we offer a Cycle to Work Scheme providing savings on new bikes, promoting the use of cycling for journeys, which has both health and environmental benefits.
Benefits that achieve monetary savings are also important, they can have huge benefits to individual’s emotional as well as financial wellbeing. This is offered through our partnerships with:
1. Tastecard
2. Car Repairs with Click Mechanic
3. VIP Currency Exchange with Eurochange
4. Haircuts at Central Barbers,
5. Treatments including sports injuries at The Treatment Lab
The ID Medical Supporting You service provides assistance where confidential support, guidance and advice may be accessed, including referrals and signposting to specialist third parties. This is focused primarily on supporting colleagues with their emotional and mental health needs and can include situations such as difficulties at home, financial worries etc,
This service has particularly been promoted during the pandemic when many people have been worried and feeling helpless. This service is an extension of the close, supportive working environment within ID Medical. Despite employing over 600 colleagues, it is a close knit supportive family.
