CCG insists there are options on the table as Serco successor is sought for hospital

Braintree and Witham Times: CCG insists there are options on the table as Serco successor is sought for hospital CCG insists there are options on the table as Serco successor is sought for hospital

Discussions are well underway to find a successor to run Braintree Community Hospital.

At a meeting of Braintree Pensioners Action Group at Braintree Town Hall on Tuesday, Dr Bryan Spencer, vice chairman of Mid Essex Clinical Commissioning Group, insisted talks had already begun with interested parties.

He said: “I can’t go into specifics for commercial reasons but yes, there are people in the frame.

“There are options locally and there are options further afield. We are in discussions.”

Concerns had previously been raised about how appealing the contract would be, given that Serco has struggled to make the hospital profitable and had not seen referral levels rise as expected.

Provide - a not for profit company already supply most of the nursing staff for the hospital and, District nurses for Halstead, Maldon and Braintree.

I believe that they are charged by Serco at this time, who then put there cut on and pass it to the NHS.

Would it be possible for Provide to do the total job

Love to know where you get your information about the hospital. The physio department is run by Provide. Outpatient staff is by two other companies.

I have looked up the link and it states "number of clinics run are physiotherapy, speech & language therapy, podiatry & minor operations." That's exactly as I knew it would be because I work there!
