DMC Healthcare presses ahead with growth strategy

DMC Healthcare has announced the appointment of Phil Curran as Business Development Director to lead the growth strategy aimed at further extending the company’s established community care proposition into ENT, ophthalmology and urgent care.

The step will build on over five years of delivering community dermatology clinics throughout the UK for CCG’s and GP’s.

With outstanding patient feedback from all the dermatology clinics, DMC are looking to focus on their clinically-led service proposition and NHS service values to clearly differentiate them from other providers.

DMC clinics are locally-driven and locally-designed, underpinned by clinical excellence and a clinical governance committee that covers all areas of the organisation, including: risk management, professional development, regular clinical protocol reviews and audits, and the active encouragement of public involvement through patient participation groups.

DMC’s ENT practice is led by clinical lead consultant, ENT surgeon and skull base surgeon Miss Claire Hopkins BMBCh MA (Oxon) FRCS (ORL-HNS) DM.

DMC’s dermatology practice is led by clinical lead consultant dermatologist Dr Tony Downs BSc, MBBS, FRCP. Further information on DMC’s clinical teams and clinical governance procedure is available at

“This is an exciting time to be joining DMC and to be extending our dermatology services into other clinical areas,” says Phil Curran, DMC Business Development Director. “It is wonderful to be working with clinicians of such high calibre.

“With the increased demand for clinically-driven community services, we are looking forward to increasing our service provision in other areas of the UK. Having worked with the NHS for many years, delivering primary care services, we have a real feel for the focus that needs to be applied for outstanding patient care and clinical governance.”


DMC Healthcare is a leading provider of consultant-led community outpatient clinics for NHS patients in the UK. Our mission is to ensure all of our patients have access to localised, specialist quality healthcare in their community. We are continually assessing and redesigning our clinical pathways based on local NHS demand, in addition to primary care and specialist community care, our services now include clinical pharmacists in GP practices, minor surgery and dermatology clinics, specialist radiology reporting, reducing outpatient backlogs and GP training and education.
