Nottingham hospital gets £6million funding boost

Nottingham’s largest private hospital has secured over £6 million of investment from new owners Circle Health Group to upgrade their facilities and services.  

The Park Hospital are expanding their facilities and receiving the latest technology, which will help local patients get treated faster with the best possible care. 

The investment programme is a result of the purchase of these hospitals in January 2020 by Circle Health Group, which is investing £100m in its UK facilities this year alone. 

The Park Hospital in Nottingham, which was opened in 1983, will get an additional laminar flow theatre, a new Outpatient reception area and dedicated treatment rooms, all in addition to the Da Vinci robot they received in the Summer.

The investment comes in response to an increase in demand for services in the region for both private and NHS patients as demand for treatment is at an all-time high.

In addition to increased theatre capacity, the diagnostic facilities at The Park hospital have also seen considerable investment with a new CT scanner, digital x-ray and fluoroscopy rooms. Imaging is an essential part of treatment as it gives the doctor a full and complete picture of the patient’s condition. Enhancing this service is a key part of ensuring that patients receive rapid access to the very best care possible. 

Amanda Dorkes, Executive Director at The Park Hospital, said:

 “We are delighted to be working alongside ModuleCo for the installation of an additional operating theatre on our site. With unparalleled demand for our hospital, it is vital that we respond proactively to increase our capacity at this time and treat as many patients as we can.”

ModuleCo have been commissioned to provide multiple operating theatres across Circle’s hospital sites. With their ultra-clean ventilation laminar flow canopy a wide range of surgical procedures can be undertaken with the patient experience at the forefront of the specification. 

Circle Health Group are well known in Nottingham, having opened their first hospital in 2008, the Nottingham Treatment Centre. A high-volume elective treatment centre positioned on the Nottingham University Hospitals’ campus at QMC. Designed, built, and commissioned with clinicians and patients’ needs in mind, the Nottingham Treatment Centre was highly regarded by both patients and staff.

The investment in the hospital will also provide a boost to the local economy, with expansion creating 30 extra jobs. Circle Health Group have also been recognised as one of the UK’s top 25 Best Large Companies to work for and there are many familiar faces returning to The Park from Circle’s Nottingham Treatment Centre. 

The group’s Chief Medical Officer, Mr Paul Manning, and Medical Director Mr Peter James are both well-known Orthopaedic Consultants in Nottingham and have worked at The Park for many years. Their most recent appointment is another renowned local Orthopaedic Consultant, Mr Ben Gooding, in his new role as Clinical Chair for The Park.

Ben Gooding, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at The Park Hospital, said:

 “I am delighted to accept this role at The Park. Circle Health Group’s introduction of site-level clinical leadership and their approach to engaging with consultants plays a crucial part in delivering exceptional outcomes for patients.

“The investment and developments at The Park Hospital make this an exciting time to join the team. To see a brand-new theatre being lifted over the building is an impressive sight to behold and the increased number of patients that this will allow us to treat will enable an improved quality of life for so many.”
