Greater Manchester welcomes new ophthalmology and gastroenterology hospital

CHEC, one of the UK’s leading providers of community healthcare, has confirmed it will be opening a new Manchester hospital.

Based in Trafford Park, 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.

The new hospital will offer ample free parking and excellent transport links. CHEC is currently fitting out the building into a state-of-the-art clinical facility complete with one ophthalmology theatre and one endoscopy suite.

Working in partnership with the NHS, CHEC has more than 25 community hospitals nationwide. The addition of CHEC in Trafford Park strengthens its existing North West stronghold which already includes Stockport, Preston, and Warrington.

Jose Bailey, chief commercial officer at CHEC, said: “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.

“For well over a decade, we’ve been trusted by the NHS to deliver healthcare services for local people, so we can’t wait to open our doors and become part of the Trafford Park community this summer. 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.”

Upon opening, treatments in both specialties will be within four weeks of receipt of referral. Those who would like to register your interest in the services CHEC will provide at its new Trafford Park site, can contact: [email protected]
