Our People

The healthcare and medical services industry is built on the dedicated clinicians, scientists, management teams and support staff who provide professional, quality care and treatment to thousands of people every day. Our staff of over 1,300 people, are and always will be the backbone of our company, and each and every person plays an important part in how our businesses are perceived and the reputations they uphold.

Our partnership philosophy remains an important element in the success of our business and an essential ingredient in our growth strategy. At Abano we co-invest in partnerships with the high quality clinical founders of successful businesses and then continue to work with them to generate additional shareholder value. We ensure the retention of these individuals through individual employment contracts, which include earn out periods, and also have a policy of actively introducing new generations of clinical leaders/partners through equity partnerships.

The changing economic environment has seen a reduction in staff turnover across the healthcare industry; however, retention and recruitment remain a key focus for each Abano business. We have a number of strategies and practices in place to ensure each Abano business is seen as a rewarding and attractive employment opportunity.

The Abano group is managed by a small executive management team consisting of Managing Director, Alan Clarke, Chief Financial Officer, Richard Keys and Group Financial Controller, Brendan O’Sullivan.
