Stevenage ophthalmology and gastroenterology hospital commemorates first anniversary

Stevenage Anniversary

Staff and patients at CHEC Stevenage were celebrating this week after the community-based healthcare provider marked a whole year of working in partnership with the NHS to increase patient choice and reduce waiting times.

Since first opening its doors in May 2023, CHEC Stevenage has provided ophthalmology and gastroenterology services to more than 6,300 patients and completed over 3000 cataract surgeries. The community hospital has also succeeded in consistently maintaining very low waiting times, with patients currently able to access most treatments within one week.

Over the last 12 months, CHEC Stevenage has pioneered a series of initiatives that make it easier for patients to access its community-based healthcare services. These include a free Home to Hospital™ pick up service and an online patient booking app.

CHEC has established a stronghold for community healthcare provision across the Home Counties, with hospitals in Basingstoke, Milton Keynes, and Watford. Throughout the UK, CHEC now has more than 25 hospitals.
