LivingCare have agreed to a partnership with Robin Lane Medical Centre and Manor Park Surgery to delivery diagnostic and outpatient services from the Robin Lane Medical Centre. LivingCare have invested over £600k in theatre provision and equipment as part of the continued growth of the provider, the award of contracts and its new business.
Established by Dr Stephen Feldman to provide care closer to the community in 2006, LivingCare continue to support the delivery of outpatient and diagnostic care through direct referrals and through supporting West Yorkshire based NHS acute trusts, seeing over 4500 patients per month. This has seen a growth of 121% in the organisation over the last 24 months as patient need continues to grow across West Yorkshire.
LivingCare prides itself on high quality care and excellent accessibility to services with the average wait for service being 3 days. To access healthcare services at Robin Lane, or any other facilities a referral is needed by your GP or specialist into our services.
Helen White, Managing Director at LivingCare comments “this is a great opportunity to continue to see the growth in LivingCare and to position our organisation for the future. As a provider we need to ensure we have appropriate capacity to meet the demand that is on community healthcare provision. By operating from Robin Lane this enables us to continue to grow, continue to meet the needs of the local healthcare economy and continues to promote patient choice.”
Luke Minshall, Commercial Director comments “the opening of this site in partnership with the local practices helps move towards the strategic aims of the NHS England Long Term Plan, and helps the Primary Care Networks fulfil their aims. This centre will enable us to drive value for the NHS, whilst reducing patient wait times across West Yorkshire. It strengthens our relationships with the acute trusts across West Yorkshire and enables us to meet patient need effectively.”
Robin Lane adds to further services and the portfolio that LivingCare provide including sports and imaging services. The centre will be fully operational for Diagnostic services from December, and outpatient clinics will start late November.
