CHEC announces major tech acquisition of groudbreaking YAG Quantel Capsulo Laser System
CHEC are proud to announce the installation of a groundbreaking new laser platform, the YAG Quantel Capsulo at its new Stockport Centre. The system provides pristine clarity of view into both the anterior and posterior segments of the eye and will facilitate efficient and accurate capsulotomy and iridotomy treatments. The device will be included in all future sites launched by the provider.
As healthcare backlogs reach record highs and eyecare backlogs the second largest in the UK, CHEC has committed to tech-first innovation across the organisation, as part of its effort in streamlining treatment while maintaining the highest quality of patient care. By promoting efficiency and reducing the length of procedure and recovery times, new technologies play a major part in helping to cut down Britain’s healthcare waiting times.
Capsulo is a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, which simplifies the implementation of previous YAG laser models. The devise is fitted with a purpose-built slit lamp and controlled using touch-screen technology. Its small footprint ensures minimal space required for instillation. The model is designed and manufactured by the medical arm of laser technology expert, Lumibird. The device installed at the Stockport centre will be the second instance of the model in the UK, and the equipment will be rolled out across all future CHEC sites.
At a time when the Greater Manchester area faces healthcare waiting lists of 33-50 weeks, the presence of a YAG Quantel Capsulo at the Stockport site will help to ensure swift, high-quality treatment for the local community.
CHEC’s commitment to providing excellence of care was recognised earlier this year when its Stoke centre received an “Outstanding” rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Jose Bailey, Commercial Director at CHEC, commented: “We are delighted to announce the installation of a new YAG Quantel Capsulo at our new Stockport site. As a local healthcare provider committed to supporting the work of the NHS, we are constantly looking for ways to develop and enhance our offering through new technologies. As we open the doors of our latest centre, we look forward to ushering in the future of eyecare and ensuring ongoing standards of care for the local community.”
