West Yorkshire hospital added to Benenden Healthcare’s network of providers
14th February 2012
The leading UK health & wellbeing mutual, Benenden Healthcare Society, today announces the addition of The Yorkshire Clinic to its network of Regional Treatment Centres.
The Yorkshire Clinic is owned by Ramsay Health Care and located in Bingley, West Yorkshire. The move comes as part of the Society’s commitment to reducing the amount of time spent by members in travelling for treatment.
Primarily, Benenden Healthcare members living in postcodes areas BD, HX, HD, WF, LA, BB and OL will be served by the hospital – amounting to around 17,600 members.
Jean Scott, Member Services Director at Benenden Healthcare, said: ‘We have an ongoing program of shortening members’ travel times by improving our Regional Treatment Centre network. Our Commissioning Team endeavours to seek partnerships with those private hospitals that demonstrate the highest standards in patient care – and The Yorkshire Clinic more than met our requirements.
‘Our members in West Yorkshire and surrounding areas can be sure of a warm welcome at the hospital.
‘As with all Society providers, we will continue to monitor demand, cost, quality of service and member feedback regarding the hospital, to ensure continued high standards.’
Opened in 1982, the hospital is set in three acres of woodlands in the grounds of Cottingley Hall, and has benefited from a £4m refurbishment programme over the last two years.
The hospital has 57 beds - all en-suite - and ample free parking with disabled spaces adjacent to the entrance. There are five operating theatres (two with laminar flow) and an endoscopy suite - and all Society-funded specialities are covered.
All diagnostics are on site as is pathology, physiotherapy, sterilisation and pharmacy, with a brand new MRI machine and a 64 slice CT scanner. The hospital takes children from the age of three.
[Note: Up to the 10th February, any members who have already been referred to Fairfield and Claremont Hospitals will continue their treatment pathway in the usual way.]
