Speaking at today’s launch, Kevin Solly, General Manager, Rutherford Cancer Centres, said: “We are proud to be extending our partnership with Bupa Health Clinics to ensure patients have access to the very best of care. The one-stop health centre will provide access to our state-of-the-art cancer diagnostics and treatments for those who need them, while also diversifying our care offering at the Rutherford Cancer Centres.
“In the UK, we are currently in the midst of a serious crisis in diagnosis and screening for cancer patients, and we know that early diagnosis of cancer saves lives. These clinics will help to strengthen diagnostic capability in the UK by providing patients with a critical healthcare facility that will be able to fast-track the time between diagnosis and treatment. As a care provider we are committed to reducing waiting times and provide a 24-hour service within a specialised environment. This will mean that patients can commence treatment sooner, which has the potential to save lives.
“This is a great example of how health providers can work together to improve care, create meaningful outcomes, and deliver tangible benefits to patients.”
Sarah Melia, General Manager at Bupa Health Services, said: “We’re delighted to partner with Rutherford Cancer Centres to launch our health clinics and services within their sites, giving people a quick and seamless pathway from diagnosis to treatment.
“Our suite of health assessments are designed to give people a current picture of their overall health and wellbeing. If any cancer symptoms are detected during an assessment, the partnership with Rutherford Cancer Clinics allows patients to quickly access treatment under the same roof, improving outcomes and giving peace of mind.”
