Interview with Sid Mansoor, Managing Partner at The Whitehall Clinic, 5 Wellington Place
Sid Mansoor is the Managing Partner of The Whitehall Clinic, a private GP, surgery and clinic. Sid has an extensive 10-year experience in managing private clinics and has worked in a number of commercial sectors throughout his career.
Tell us a little bit about what you do…
As Managing Partner, my day-to-day role is extremely varied.
A key priority is setting the strategic goals of the business, helping the company to deliver against commercial objectives, reviewing income targets and KPI’s to ensure success.
I help to drive growth for the business by forging relationships with key partners such as digital marketing agencies. At The Whitehall Clinic we are doing healthcare differently, by setting new standards in the private medical arena.
I also manage and develop the team, monitoring operational performance. I coach and lead employees whilst fostering an ethical and positive environment for both staff and patients. I ensure the clinic meets all CQC and legislative guidelines.
What’s your greatest achievement to date?
Quite simply, my career!
I’ve worked in many sectors since the start of career, and I managed to successfully navigate my way from the education industry as the Head of Chemistry in a secondary school, to recruitment, and then finally into healthcare. Although I loved every minute of my time in the classroom, the admin and the time associated to move onto the next level somewhat took enjoyment out of the role, and I was ready for my next challenge.
I’m extremely proud of that transition!
Tell us something exciting that most people don’t know about you?
I’m pretty competitive.
I once queued for 56 hours to make sure I was the first customer in a store for a brand new Sony TV…mind you, I like to think I’m far too wise and old to be doing that now!
I genuinely think my competitiveness has provided an advantage in my career. It might sound like a cliché but genuinely I’m only interested in working in a business that is the best out there, providing market-leading services. Any business owner will know the amount of effort and hard work it takes and I haven’t had a day off since last May – not even Christmas and New Year – yet I love what I do, so it doesn’t feel like work.
What is your favourite thing about working at Wellington Place and why?
I love the look and feel of Wellington Place.
It’s great to be working on a business estate that is so clean and has such contemporary buildings. And not to mention how great it feels to be part of a community, working with like-minded professionals.
Which community events do you take part in at Wellington Place and why?
I haven’t had chance to attend any of the community events just yet, but I can’t wait to attend the events across the summer months when everything starts to open back up.
The Whitehall Clinic did take part in the Beat Heartbreak event in 2020 though, alongside the British Heart Foundation, assisting in blood pressure readings and providing health advice for your heart.
What three words sum up Wellington Place to you?
Modern – The development and the office buildings are so modern, it’s such a healthy working space.
Premium – The buildings have such a premium and quality feel to them.
Huge – The development has expanded so much, it’s so great to see.
