CHEC has announced the opening of a new treatment centre in Basingstoke, providing ophthalmology and endoscopy services to patients.
The clinic will be CHEC’s first site in Hampshire, expanding CHEC’s services across England. Its strategic location in the centre of Basingstoke will make it easily accessible for patients in the local community.
On the launch, Jon Dore said, “The expansion of our services across the South will help us reach more patients that are in urgent need of efficient, high-quality eye treatment and diagnostic endoscopy services.
“As NHS backlogs are continuing to rise, it’s vital that we provide the services to support patients in as many locations across the UK as possible. As always, we look forward to welcoming the Basingstoke community to our new facility and supporting them with their healthcare needs.”
The launch will help assist the NHS by providing care for a proportion of the half a million people currently waiting for ophthalmic treatment, freeing up the NHS to focus on other crucial services.
The site is due to open in December and will follow CHEC’s recent opening in Accrington, making it CHEC’s 17th site in England, as part of its significant efforts to expand its offerings in the North West and Midlands.
