As the company has grown, management has developed a hub‐and‐spoke strategy in order to maximise revenue and take advantage of capacity and capabilities across the network, particularly by maintaining high‐value referral work inside the group.

In 2018, management initiated the development of six super hubs to underpin the wider hub-and‐spoke network. The super hub features include: out of hours, hospital capabilities, specialty referral capabilities, and diagnostic imaging.
