"At The Hospital Group, we’ve taken a measured and responsible approach to the extraordinary circumstances caused by Covid-19.
My team and I are proud to continue to assist the NHS at this critical time, and we continue to follow NHS England guidelines which allow us to remain open to care for those patients who need it the most.
Delivering exceptional levels of care to every patient we care for remains our highest priority. We will continue to prioritise delivering essential services to help the NHS as it faces unprecedented pressure, and we stand at the forefront of this fight with them.
We are already providing essential services to the NHS, and operationally we have organised our schedules to ensure that patients who are reliant on these services are catered for at a time when there is increasing pressure building on the health service. But we are also ready to support further, through extending our facilities to provide a home for non-Covid related services that would otherwise add to ever-increasing waiting lists. In that context, we are seeing increasing levels of NHS activity, with clinical pathways being prepared for still more services.
We believe that we have a responsibility to work with the NHS at this time, and we are proud to support NHS services. To that end, our Senior Management Team is engaged in ensuring that we build appropriate relationships which allow the NHS to focus on managing the pandemic.
We’re glad to be able to add value, and are ready to help further – The Hospital Group has more capacity which could be utilised by the NHS across our clinic network, from London to Cardiff, Glasgow and the North-East of England, helping more patients at a time they need it most."
