The new CHEC Ilford set to reduce NHS waiting times and increase patient choice.

CHEC, one of the UK’s leading providers of community healthcare, is ready to welcome its first NHS patients after officially opening the doors at its Ilford site. Centrally based on Ilford Hill, the conveniently located facility will help reduce NHS waiting times and increase patient choice by providing access to ophthalmology and gastroenterology services in the community.

 

With excellent local transport links, the new state-of-the-art clinical facility is equipped with one ophthalmology theatre and one endoscopy suite. Now accepting ophthalmology referrals, the Ilford hospital is supporting the NHS to reduce waiting times by treating patients within four weeks. 

“Patient choice, exceptional care and equity of access are central to CHEC’s operations and ethos, which is why we’re proud to collaborate with NHS partners nationwide, helping to keep waiting times to a minimum while delivering the very best quality of care,” explains Samea Ahsan Hospital Manager at CHEC Ilford. 

 

As an accredited provider of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for ophthalmology, CHEC hosted its first open evening in January, where local optometrists were welcomed to a CPD event on Cataract in Diabetics.  

 

“For well over a decade, we’ve been trusted by the NHS to deliver healthcare services in the community. We’re excited to become part of the Ilford community and look forward to welcoming our first patients in the coming weeks”. 

 

“In the meantime, we’d welcome any residents to get in touch and learn more about how we work with the NHS to make much-needed treatments more readily accessible,” concludes Jose Bailey, Commercial Director.
