The Horder Centre receives Wealden Hero Award

We are delighted to announce that The Horder Centre has been voted as a ‘Wealden Hero’ by the local community. The annual award celebrates Wealden residents and businesses who have gone above and beyond for their local area, and The Horder Centre was given the accolade for their contribution to NHS services during the pandemic.  

During this time The Horder Centre worked closely with the local NHS trust, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells Hospital (MTW), and treated patients who had broken hips (clinically described as the fracture neck of femur pathway). We were proud to collaborate with MTW and developed an effective pathway for this patient group, which resulted in superb care. 

Dr Richard Tyler, Chief Executive of Horder Healthcare, accepted the award from local Wealden MP Nusrat Ghani and the certificate will be displayed in the Centre.

Nusrat Ghani said, “I am pleased to award The Horder Centre and its CEO Richard Tyler with the Wealden Hero Award for their fantastic service. The Horder Centre are experts in knee and hip replacements and they are an excellent service and incredibly useful to residents in Crowborough, Wealden and the wider area of Kent and East Sussex. They have been fantastic throughout the pandemic and stepped up to support the NHS and utilise their facilities to the maximum. Switching activity in a surgical hospital is a complex and demanding task requiring inspired and energetic leadership of a high order. The team rose magnificently to the occasion and supported the local and wider community at this time of crisis and they rightly deserve the Wealden Hero Award.”
