Insurers guaranteed fixed prices

Mobile Doctors Group has announced an exclusive nationwide contract with Nuffield Proactive Health and Nuffield Diagnostics.

Nuffield Diagnostics will provide all of Mobile Doctor’s rehabilitation, treatments and diagnostic services.

This partnership means both that the claimant receives a complete treatment package until recovery, and the insurer is guaranteed a fixed price irrespective of the number of sessions required.

This move will see Mobile Doctors Group, which is one of the largest providers of medico-legal reports for personal injury claims in the UK, work closely with the major liability insurers to provide efficient and high quality treatment to claimants.

Nuffield Diagnostics will handle all investigations such as MRI services, x-rays, radiology, CT scans and ultrasound from one of their nationwide centres.

They are currently benefiting from a £50m investment programme which will ensure new equipment over the next two years.

Matthew Game, chief executive of Mobile Doctors, said: “We are delighted with this exclusive partnership which is very important in the development of our business. The quality of service and clinical governance that Nuffield Diagnostics and Nuffield Proactive Health offer will ensure that the very best level of treatment and care is given to claimants.”

Andrew Allen, chief executive at Nuffield Diagnostics, added: “Our upfront investment in this market is already paying dividends. Working with the market leader in this way demonstrates our national reach and the quality of our radiology services”.

Charles Percy, director of physical medicine at Nuffield Proactive Health said: “We are delighted to be working with Mobile Doctors, who have recognised the advantages of using a single supplier to deliver consistent treatment protocols, using the latest evidence-based pathways, on a national basis. This ensures the most appropriate treatment for the individuals concerned, with the most cost-effective outcomes for the client.”
