About Optimise Health Clinic

 

The Optimise Health Clinics were founded by Dr Ben Sinclair, a GP entrepreneur with a passion for creating tailored personal medical services.

Based in Birmingham The Optimise Clinic offers convenient private healthcare services and consultancy to individuals and corporate clients, combining the good old traditional family doctor relationship with cutting edge technology to provide healthcare at your fingertips.

The integrated clinic concept was first conceived by Dr Sinclair while at medical school (see blog post here) where he studied Medicine and Surgery at the University of Leeds then went on to complete GP training in Yorkshire. He attained membership of the Royal College of General Practice in 2007.

He founded Sinclair Health Limited in 2009, as an innovative health consultancy, aimed at improving access to healthcare for hard to reach groups such as working age men. At this time he developed the Integrated Health Pyramid – a visual paradigm to help patients understand how all areas of health, life and spirituality can be held in linked equilibrium; and where to seek solutions to health problems (see blog post here).

After working in various sectors from high level corporate (PwC/ First Direct Bank) to the Prison service, Dr Sinclair is proud to have opened the Optimise Health Clinic at the heart of the Birmingham business district. It is an integrated health clinic, serving clients need for convenient access to high quality bespoke private healthcare. Alongside a varied and highly skilled team, Dr Sinclair aims to bring his Integrated health and wellbeing skills to life.

Our Team

“I work in the corporate health sector, promoting self-care and appropriate screening services to improve access and continuity for patients. My Integrated pyramid model is at the bedrock of my philosophy to provide fully integrated health and wellbeing strategies for all”

About Ben... (Click to expand)

Dr Sinclair studied Medicine and Surgery at the University of Leeds then went on to complete GP training in Yorkshire. He attained membership of the Royal College of General Practice in 2007. After 11 years training it was time for a sabbatical, travelling in Asia and the antipodes with his wife, spending time in Northern Cambodia as Medical Director with a local charity, delivering mobile primary care services and health training to remote jungle villages.

On return to the UK he developed an interesting portfolio of work including community and emergency GP posts, teaching GP Trainees, Nurse Practitioners and Medical Students; all the while developing an interest in Men’s Health and writing for several national health publications and blogs.

He founded Sinclair Health Limited in 2009, as an innovative health consultancy, aimed at improving access to healthcare for hard to reach groups such as working age men and in 2011 Sinclair Health delivered mobile health screening and promotion to corporate clients such as PwC Leeds and First Direct Bank amongst other clients who wished to improve access to high quality convenient healthcare supported by proprietary cloud-based software.

At the same time, he found an interest in Secure Environment Medicine, taking up senior clinician roles in Prison Healthcare to guide and improve services for vulnerable prisoners, particularly triage, using remote technology.

After recovering from malignant melanoma surgery, he developed an interest in pain management and medication abuse, becoming a well-known lecturer on this niche subject, working with NHS England and the Royal College of General Practise, contributing to national prescribing guidance and frameworks for pain management across the northern prison sector. He is an advocate for integrated multidisciplinary care pathways including the psycho-spiritual aspects of medicine.

He continues to train prescribers in the art of managing complex consultations and pain management techniques in prison populations.

In 2015 he co-founded a full-service private GP practise in York with a range of clinical and lifestyle services. He left the clinical director role in 2017 to move south for family reasons.

Dr Sinclair loves spending time with his wife and family in their local community, training and competing in Triathlon, enjoying outdoor pursuits and experiencing adventures through travel, food, language and cultural exchange. He aims to live life to the full.

This is a crucial, yet rarely available, combination that enables you to greater understand your body and fuel yourself appropriately according to your unique physiology and metabolism.”
