Current Managing Director, Christian Lyons, established the company in 2007 in response to the then Practice Based Commissioning agenda.
Shortly after incorporating the company, seed capital was raised from 51 Croydon GP practices. Dr. Nilu Vajpeyi is responsible for the delivery of the company’s robust Clinical Governance structure, and as her specialist interest was in Dermatology, Communitas Clinics was best placed to apply for local Dermatology contracts. Subsequently, in 2009 the company’s first Dermatology contract was awarded in Croydon.
Following the successful delivery of this contract and the company’s growing reputation for high-quality services, this initial contract was followed with another Croydon contract providing Intermediate Ear Nose and Throat services. Communitas Clinics still successfully delivers these services and has added five more intermediate Dermatology services to these contracts in Crawley, Horsham and Mid Sussex, Bexley, Greenwich, Barking and Dagenham and Havering and more recently, a TeleDermoscopy service in Surrey Downs
The company has built its reputation working closely with local commissioning groups, sharing our detailed data sets on referral patterns and service pathways. This detailed data is complimented with exceptional standards of Clinical Governance, which is overseen by a team of internationally renowned consultants and specialist clinicians. One of the company’s key values is to always approach our service delivery in a positive and solution focused way, ensuring patients’ and commissioners’ needs are fully met.
