Our Vision

We are changing the face of healthcare. 

Why? 

Confronted at once by significant strain and profound opportunity, healthcare must transform for the future.

Using exceptional technology and a revived human touch, Next Practice is re-imagining a new tomorrow where GPs and their patients work as partners for better health.

Our goal is nothing less than the best General Practice experience on planet earth, and we are looking for like-minded GP partners to join our movement.

We are artfully creating a new kind of General Practice by reducing the limitations of time, resources and inefficiency whilst transforming the experience so that patients receive not only “Best Practice” care but “Next Practice” care.

Outstanding care

Clinical quality and safety is the cornerstone of healthcare. Practice systems inform clinicians, assisting decision making and reducing the risk of harm. With medical knowledge advancing, continuous learning, driven by data and a respectful culture is key.

Patients as customers icon

Patients as customers

Placing health in the hands of patients is vital for improving value and outcomes in healthcare. We aim  to delight patients at every step with an emphasis on partnership, wellness, empowerment and sustainable behaviour change.

Serving the GP master icon

Serving the GP master

You GPs are an amazing lot, although we know that sometime the job can feel a bit like a battle for survival. With utmost respect for your skill and clinical autonomy, Next Practice supports you with the processes and tools, so as to create more time for  your expert personal touch.

With purpose icon

With purpose

Changing healthcare is not enough for us, we also want to change the world. For every consult conducted in a Next Practice clinic, we will provide a health intervention to a less fortunate person so that they can share in our success. We call this our “Care4Care” program.
