1) Providing out of hours medical and dental services
BARDOC is a community benefits interest organisation, which specialises in providing out of hours medical and dental services. Our constitution is based on membership of our patients, GP surgeries and staff members.
BARDOC provides support to our GP practices in our localities at not for profit rates, to enable the delivery of patient care.
BARDOC also provides donations to local charities and responds and provides support to our local economy when the need arises for example, recent floods.
2) Measures of support
150,000 patients accessed our services within the past 12 months.
Our current income has remained the same this year as last (£8,067,584). However, within this budget, BARDOC is providing more services to support the local community, such as a triage and visiting service linked with the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) at no cost, which results in less patients being conveyed to hospital.
3) Providing employment opportunities
BARDOC is proud to be an employer of local people and has also worked closely with the local education authority and provided opportunities for young apprentices.
