New Hernia service in Leicestershire
A new county-wide specialist community hernia service was launched in September for all patients registeredwith a GP practice in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. This service has been commissioned by Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Provider Company Limited to reduce waiting times for patients and reduce the risk of patients operations being cancelled on or before the day of surgery and therefore improving patient experience. The new model also supports the NHS Five Year Forward View and STP aspirations to support patients closer to their own homes.
Patients will be seen in local GP practices in Leicester City at the County Practice in Syston, the Merlyn Vaz Health Centre and from Castle Medical Group in Ashby de la Zouche and Heath Lane Surgery in Earl Shilton. Patients will be seen and assessed by a Consultant Surgeon. All surgical treatment options will be discussed where applicable.
Independent Health Group has been providing a hernia service across Swindon and Wiltshire since 2006 and during that time the Group have operated on approximately 4,000 patients with excellent results.
Dr Wordsworth said “We pride ourselves on the quality of care we provide our patients. The feedback we get from patients is excellent and we absolutely believe that patients always come first which is reflected in all that we do.”
