Benenden Hospital features in TV programme about independent healthcare

9th December 2014

Benenden Hospital has had a starring role in a new programme which has been made about independent healthcare.

The 45 minute film which was commissioned by AIHO – the Association for Independent Healthcare Organisations was made by ITN Productions and is presented by Natasha Kaplinsky. Filming took place at benenden hospital at the end of November.

The programme focuses on how the independent sector can work in partnership with the NHS. It also lets the public know what the independent sector can do and how it is regulated.

There are two sections on Benenden Hospital. The first includes interviews with two former patients who agreed to be involved with the programme. They were Grace Moon, who had a knee replacement at benenden and Rosalind Thompson who had a hip replacement. The patients speak about having their own private rooms, the standard of care they received and the comfort they took from Benenden Hospital’s zero infection rates. Their surgeon, Matthew Oliver, is also interviewed and the piece includes shots of Benenden Hospital’s varicose vein surgeon Eddie Chaloner at work too.

The second section on benenden hospital focuses on training opportunities for staff and first aid courses for the local community. It features hospital staff talking about working their way up from nursing positions to management and the support that Benenden has given them.  There is also an interview with a local school teacher who undertook a free first aid course at Benenden Hospital then went on to save a pupil’s life when he was choking.
