Supporting the NHS
As a result of Horder Healthcare supporting the NHS, all non-essential outpatient services across all sites have been cancelled. This includes outpatient clinics, pre-assessment and MSK services. This comes after the decision was made to cancel elective surgeries.
These changes are to support a major deal that has been struck between the NHS and the nation’s independent hospitals to expand hospital capacity to help battle coronavirus.
This deal is the first of its kind ever and includes the provision of 8,000 hospital beds across England, nearly 1200 more ventilators, more than 10,000 nurses, over 700 doctors and over 8,000 other clinical staff.
We would like to apologise to all patients who are affected and we are in the process of informing them. We appreciate these unprecedented changes at Horder Healthcare will cause huge disappointment for some, but this is a necessary move to help support the NHS.
We understand this is a very challenging time for everyone and thank you for your patience and understanding.
