Cheshire healthcare company wins Manchester Royal Eye Hospital contract
Ellesmere Port-based EMS-Healthcare has won a contract with Manchester Royal Eye Hospital to provide mobile medical unit services.
The 12-month deal will see EMS’ new Macular Treatment Centre operating at Trafford General Hospital for five days a week.
EMS-Healthcare’s business delivery manager, Suzie Nield, said of the contract: “We’re proud to be working with Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, one of the UK’s leading providers of specialist eye treatments.
“This is the third cutting-edge eye care facility of its kind that we have provided to help meet the rise in requirement for ophthalmic services at eye treatment centres.”
She added: “It’s important to us that treatment is undertaken in a clinical yet stress-free environment, so as well as adhering to strict NHS standards the unit is comfortable and welcoming.”
EMS-Healthcare has transformed the inside of its Liberty Plus medical trailer into an environment that includes a reception, waiting area and space to provide treatment for wet age-related macular degeneration, a condition that causes sight loss.
Sajjad Mahmood, a consultant ophthalmic surgeon at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, commented: “We are delighted to bring our macular service to Trafford General Hospital.
“Our aim is to provide a convenient, high quality and responsive service for local people without them having to travel into Manchester for expert eye care.”
He continued: “This is a major expansion of our macular service that will enable us to treat many more patients than at present.”
