About us

Nexus was formed in 2016 with the merging of 4 well established training practices in north Southwark, with a 5th practice joined in 2017. We look after a practice population of 76,000 patients spread across our 9 sites. The overall aim of Nexus Health Group is to provide a clinically excellent service to our patients, recognising the needs of our local population and to provide a learning and developmental environment for our staff. Our clinical approach is based on a foundation of clinical excellence, clinical leadership and clinical governance.

We are based on 9 sites across north Southwark all geographically close and well served by local transport hubs at London Bridge, Elephant & Castle and Canada Water. We share one patient list but our patients are attached to a specific site and are looked after by the site based teams which include GPs, Nurses, Physicians Associates, Paramedics, ANPs and Pharmacists. These site-based teams are supported by centralised HR, IT, Clinical Administration and the Senior Management Team.

All our sites function as traditional practices with a Site Manager and GP partners working in the practice. All sites are involved in GP training and increasingly training the wider AHP team such as nurses and PAs. Nexus works closely with the local PCN with 2 partners as Clinical Directors. As an at scale provider there are many opportunities to develop areas of interest and leadership within Nexus and the wider PCN
