Our Ethos

medelit ethos

We agree with the concept of health as defined by the WHO:“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

On this definition we base our daily approach to our patients. It is the basis of our ethos.

Our goal is therefore that of delivering a thorough medical assistance with a special attention to recognising and correcting all factors that can negatively affect a person’s health.

Improving health is central to what we do. Providing home visits is a way of life for our healthcare professionals as they all believe that a warm and compassionate approach to healthcare contributes to more fulfilment and better outcomes for patients.

We believe each and every person should have the possibility of receiving prompt, first-rate medical attention in a comprehensible, comfortable and timely way and this is what we strive for in every visit we make.

Medelit’s healthcare team is formed by highly-selected, extremely qualified and experienced professionals. We are collectively involved and committed in our growth and success.
We are committed to providing excellence in home healthcare:

  • Accessibility and Contact: Our services can be easily booked by phone or email, payment can be done directly whilst booking, with a credit card. Our professionals are easily traceable and contactable.
  • Dedicated time and privacy: Dedicated time is based on your needs. Your privacy is respected and guaranteed.
