Our South Newton Hospital site has taken on patients from a Salisbury District Hospital ward while essential maintenance is carried out.
The move is being made to avoid a reduction in beds at the Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust hospital’s Breamore Ward as well as to ensure continuity of care for patients.
The six-to-eight-week arrangement will see NHS care being provided by Trust staff for up to 26 patients across two wards at our South Newton Hospital. The arrangement is already up and running and the two wards are already at maximum capacity.
Alastair Clegg, our chief executive, said: “Renovo Care is delighted to be partnering with Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust at South Newton Hospital.
“While Salisbury District Hospital’s Breamore Ward is undergoing essential maintenance, we have reached an agreement that allows Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust to move their operational service to part of South Newton Hospital from where they can continue to provide care to their patients over a six-to-eight-week period while works are completed.”
Stacey Hunter, Salisbury NHS Trust CEO, said: “This arrangement will allow the hospital to continue to deliver the same level of care while essential maintenance is completed.
“The NHS will continue to deliver the care with NHS staff and free to all patients. We are grateful to Renovo Care, which have worked in partnership with us.”
