2018 PRIVATE HEALTHCARE SUMMIT

Philip spoke at the 2018 Private Healthcare Summit in Westminster on the on 'The Future for NHS PPUs'. Please see the press release, from LaingBuisson for why the NHS PPUs offer a win-win for patients, consultants, insurers, healthcare providers as well as the NHS itself:
NHS PPUs offer 'win-win' for NHS and private sector, says consultant - LaingBuisson News

HEART CENTRE PPU TAKEN OVER BY TRUST

NHS private patient hospital services at The Essex Cardiothoracic Centre (CTC), formerly managed by Ramsay Health Care and called the Orwell Suite, have been brought in-house.

The change brings Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals in line with most other NHS trusts, who manage private patient units (PPUs) themselves and use the financial surplus to support services.

Now called Nash Basildon, it opened after refurbishment and expects to expand the range of procedures offered.

Spokesman Tom Abell said: 'Having a PPU within a specialist centre like the CTC also offers patients the peace of mind of having easy access to specialist theatres and critical care facilities, if needed, which is only available in a limited number of private hospitals.'

A working group including consultant representatives concluded that the trust would benefit from bringing private patient management in-house.
PPU adviser Philip Housden, of Housden Group, said it was planned to extend the new branding – Nash Private Healthcare – to Southend and Broomfield Hospital sites.

Since the CTC opened in 2007, the private patient ward has been managed by Ramsay Health Care and called the Orwell Suite. The contract with Ramsay Health Care expired at the end of September 2017.
