Lancashire and South Cumbria ICB accredits CHEC Accrington as a system provider of gastroenterology services

CHEC, one of the UK's first community-based providers of gastroenterology and endoscopy services, has announced its Accrington hospital has been acknowledged as an accredited provider of gastroenterology services by Lancashire and South Cumbria ICB.

Working in partnership with the NHS, the addition of CHEC as an accredited provider increases patient choice for people living in Accrington and the surrounding areas. Already offering end to end ophthalmic services from its Accrington hospital, the addition of gastroenterology strengthens CHEC’s position as a provider of community healthcare. 

Based in a state-of-the-art centre at Castle House, the community care facility has a dedicated clinical team and on-site endoscopy suite. Jose Bailey, CHEC Commercial Director explained: “It’s increasingly common practice for ophthalmology services to be delivered in the community, but gastroenterology and endoscopy is a much newer pathway. We’ve spearheaded the development of these much-needed services in the community and are looking forward to serving people living in Accrington and the surrounding areas.

“Patient choice, exceptional care and equity of access are central to CHEC’s operations and ethos, which is why we’re proud to collaborate with NHS partners nationwide, helping to keep waiting times to a minimum while delivering the very best quality of care.”

Access to CHEC’s state-of-the-art facilities allows GPs an additional referral pathway that will help maintain short waiting times and promptly diagnose patients who need access to gastrointestinal treatment. To assist with this, CHEC commits to assessing and treating patients within four weeks of initial referral and ensures that full patient reports are returned to GPs within two days of any given procedure or treatment.
