CHEC announces launch of Stevenage treatment centre Post Date : March 14, 2023 News Courtney Busby CHEC is delighted to announce the opening of a new treatment centre in Stevenage. Scheduled to open in April 2023, CHEC Stevenage will offer accessible, prompt, and convenient ophthalmology and endoscopy treatment for patients throughout Hertfordshire. The new site will not only increase the availability of healthcare services locally but also offer high-quality, personalised, specialist care. With both ophthalmology and endoscopy facing record-breaking waiting times, CHEC’s latest hospital will provide an essential solution to the current NHS backlog, allowing patients to rapidly access the care they need locally and easing pressure on the NHS. Jose Bailey, Commercial Director at CHEC was elated to confirm the opening of CHEC Stevenage, and said, “Community-based, accessible services epitomise the vital importance of local alternative patient choice services, and are crucial in easing the backlog in both outpatient and elective arenas. We are thrilled to bring our services to another locale where we can make a real difference.” The opening of CHEC’s Stevenage centre follows the recent launch of CHEC Worcester, marking the second opening of 2023. CHEC’s services have been consistently recognised for their safety, effectiveness, quality of care, and patient-centric focus, with its Stoke hospital recently receiving an “Outstanding” rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
