History: Event 10 - The Horder Centre receives Any Qualified Provider status

In April 2011 a new contract between the Horder Centre and the South East Coast Strategic Health Authority was brought into effect.  This initiative known as Any Qualified Provider is part of a new Government enterprise which allows patients to choose where they wish to be treated, the Centre being the first independent provider in the South East to be awarded this new contract to treat NHS patients in line with this initiative.

The Centre now provides physiotherapy services for inpatients and outpatients as well as those seeking help for treatment of sports related injuries, in a new state of the art unit opened in 2011 by the Olympic athlete Sally Gunnell OBE.  Outreach physiotherapy services in Eastbourne, Reigate and Tunbridge Wells allow those who have been treated as inpatients to be followed up nearer their homes as well as providing outpatient services for those who seek treatment locally.
