100% service uptime record at Addenbrooke’s Hospital
Regent’s Park Heart Clinics Ltd. (Regent’s Park), an independent healthcare company specialising in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease, today announced an unprecedented 100% service uptime over the duration of its contract to provide mobile cath lab services at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge. Addenbrooke’s Hospital is part of Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Addenbrooke’s is the teaching hospital for the University of Cambridge with a reputation for clinical excellence both nationally and internationally.
Dr. Michael O’Sullivan, Director of Cardiology & Consultant Cardiologist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital said “Regent’s Park have provided an excellent service to our Trust over the last two years. There has been a 100% service uptime record with not a single cancellation of a catheter lab session. Our patients have benefited enormously with a large reduction in inpatient waiting times for cardiac catheterisation procedures.”
Dr. O’Sullivan added: “Everyone in our Trust has been extremely impressed and we would have no hesitation in recommending their services to other NHS hospitals. The service has allowed our Trust with the perfect way to expand its invasive cardiology services and Regent’s Park have also helped us to develop our fixed site catheter lab services that will be opening shortly. We expect them to be our long term cardiology partners and I am sure more news on this exciting partnership will follow shortly from both parties.”
Dr. Ohri, Chief Executive of Regent’s Park, said, “It has been a tremendous privilege to work alongside the committed and highly skilled cardiologists and staff at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. We always set ourselves high quality hurdles at Regent’s Park and we are very proud of our 100% service record at Addenbrooke’s. I believe this has been achieved for three main reasons – our strategy of providing brand new cath labs, good operations management and most importantly, the professionalism and teamwork of NHS and Regent’s Park staff.”
Dr. Ohri added: “I would like to use this opportunity to pay a special tribute to the following Regent’s Park staff who through their dedication have made this partnership so successful over the last two years:
Radiographers: Andrew White, Elizabeth Wishart, Ian Court & Bruce Atkins;
Cardiac Physiologists: Kenny Treacher & Michael Octave; and
Cardiac Nurses: Bryn Webber, Natalie Quinnell, Mo Mesad & Sue Ansell.”
