Clarica, the online medical care platform, says the UK’s NHS is struggling to cope with the number of doctors being trained.
ClinicaMedica, which has more than 1.5 million members in over 100 countries, is a community-based medical training platform.
Its founders have set out to help medical professionals and the healthcare system understand what is required of them to be successful in the workforce.
The company’s mission statement is to help people become more confident in their abilities and to better serve their communities.
“Clinics are where we provide quality care, provide personalised and tailored care to all, and connect people to each other in ways that are more personal, more connected and more accessible,” the company’s website says.
The startup says the main thing that a clinician needs to understand in order to become successful is the NHS’s training framework, which it says covers everything from the basics to the most complex tasks.
“We think that the best way to help the NHS to improve is to be trained, which is the most critical piece of our healthcare strategy,” Ms Farrow said.
Ms Farrow says there is a need for more people to become certified as medical professionals.
“If we want to be more effective as a healthcare system and a country then we need to train a lot more clinicians, and more clinicians are not trained to be clinicians,” she said.
“The challenge is that if we don’t train them, we’re not going to be able to train doctors.”
She says many clinicians in the NHS are not being trained properly.
“There is a lot of confusion in the training of doctors,” she told RN.
“Some people are not getting the training that they need.”
She said the company is looking at offering a career path that can help people get into the workforce and to be the clinician they want to become.
“This is something that we want patients to know about and it’s something that our organisation is doing.
We’re going to make sure that we are training all of our doctors,” Ms McBride said.
ClinicCare, which launched in July, has also set up a website where clinicians can learn more about how they can get trained.
