Community Healthcare are a sister company of Community Health and Eyecare. We believe in maintaining the highest clinical standards and delivering the best care possible. As such, CH have been CQC registered for 9 years with independent inspections validating our core beliefs.
The scale of our organisation shows our commitment to deliver. We have our own robust referral, booking and management team of 48 staff. Our Business intelligence comes from our own quality, KPI and data analytics which allows us to make data-driven decisions. We have over 60 full-time clinical staff.
The recent pandemic of Covid 19 has devastated health economies worldwide. Covid-19 has resulted in an unprecedented ‘stop’ to all elective care in the NHS. Looking at surgical waiting lists alone, the NHS hovers around a 4m patients waiting at any one time. With the collapse of elective care, this instantly translated to 8m patients on the waiting list from March 2020. It is estimated that it will take over 3 years to get the waiting list back to 4m. The private sector is primed to be ‘providers’ of choice for elective care with the ongoing demands on acute trusts for Covid-free sites, for the foreseeable future
To understand the uniqueness of our offering, we first need to understand the potential problems
Due to Covid-19, the NHS acute hospitals will continue to suffer from estate resource limitations. This further equates to resultant backlog of patients, upcoming winter pressures and inevitable reduced volumes. Therefore, the traditional insourcing solution may no longer be appropriate as a potential solution to the current challenges.
As one of the leading UK providers, we have our own hospitals across the UK. If these are not within the catchment area of your hospital, we can provide mobile clinics and mobile operating theatres to free up your existing resources.
The staff in acute NHS hospitals have managed remarkable. Our hero’s have done the NHS proud. Many of CH staff have also volunteered in the fight at Nightingale Hospitals. With upcoming winter pressures and the unprecedented backlog of elective cases within the NHS, it can be assumed that NHS staff may suffer from fatigue, anxiety and other emotional reactions while even having to self-isolate in some cases. This may lead to shortage of staff.
We have our own full workforce, including administrative and clerical staff. Furthermore, we would welcome NHS staff with open arms, but we will not rely on them in these extremely testing times.
Over the next 12-18 months with social distancing and self-isolation, it is inevitable that acute providers will have limited capacity to deliver the volumes that would have been delivered in normal times. Patients will be staggered in attendance, waiting rooms will be sparse and clinics maybe closed for cleaning.
We can run alongside the NHS providers by delivering services 7 days a week including evenings at our mobile clinics or acute hospitals.
In the short term, it is likely that the NHS will be dealing with urgent and emergency patients as the covid-19 pandemic begins to be controlled.
As an organisation we have dealt with our own emergencies with our own on call service for many years. This limits the burden on acute providers for the long-term.
