Bromley Healthcare is a social enterprise – and one of the things that makes us special is that everyone who works here has the opportunity to be a shareholder.
This means that every member of contracted staff and also local GPs who deliver our services on an on-going all have a stake in making us successful.
Being a shareholder
Shareholders in an organisation like Bromley Healthcare are slightly different to those in a commercial organisation. Our shareholders don’t receive large amounts of money if the organisation is successful – however they do have a say in how any surpluses are reinvested in local services. Almost 1000 doctors, nurses, therapists and administrative staff who deliver services every day are involved in decision-making.
Our shareholders cannot trade shares and cannot own more than one share each. Their shareholding is symbolic of their committment to patient services, ensuring that Bromley Healthcare is a good place to work and gives them a right to a voice at annual meetings.
We have three elected staff governors who play a key role in ensuring staff opinions and insight are heard at Executive and Board level. ANY member of staff, who is a shareholder, can be a governor.
