Company Profile


Centric Health was founded in Ireland in 2003 by Dr Maurice Cox and Dr Ray Power.  Today, with a staff in excess of 300, it has integrated its services in 6 key areas to best serve the 200,000+ patients that pass through its doors each year in Ireland and the UK.    


  1. Centric GP: GP Care is delivered throughout Ireland via our ever expanding network of purpose-built Primary Care facilities where Centric GP Doctors and Nurses work in tandem with Dentists, Consultants, Physiotherapists and HSE Primary Care teams facilitated by on-site diagnostics to support medical needs in the local community.
  2. Locumotion: Centric’s Medical Recruitment company, Locumotion, ensures an available supply of Doctors and Consultants for its Urgent Care and Primary Care services.  It also provides doctors and specialist consultants to GP practices and Hospitals throughout Ireland and is the preferred medical recruitment provider to the Health Service Executive, Ireland's National Health Service.
  3. VHI Swiftcare: In response to long wait times in A & E Hospital departments, an Urgent Care network was established. This joint venture between Irelands largest Healthcare insurer, the VHI and Centric Health – VHI Swiftcare, provides non-life threatening medical care to over 1000 patients a day, 8am to 10pm, 365 days a year.  Following 11 years of this joint venture, VHI assumed full ownership of VHI Swiftcare in July 2017, retaining Centric Health to continue to provide clinical manpower and expertise.
  4. Global Diagnostics: In response to long waiting times in Ireland, the UK and Australia for general x-ray and MRI imaging, Centric Health established Global Diagnostics.   Patients of Centric Health’s Primary Care Facilities and the larger community now benefit from faster, peer reviewed state of the art radiology services with waiting times reduced by as much as three months.  This enables Centric to progress the treatment of patients at a much faster rate than before.
