Royal Surrey Community contract
The Royal Surrey together with Procare Health Ltd have bid for the contract to run adult Community Services across Guildford and Waverley including Haslemere, Milford and Cranleigh Community Hospitals. They are the preferred bidder at this time and therefore, subject to detailed agreements, can expect to be successful to start at beginning 2018/19. These services were run by Virgin Healthcare.
Procare Health Ltd is a private company run by GPs.
Bringing together provision of acute and community services offers many exciting opportunities provided of course that the services are well run in accord with community wishes and involvement. Haslemere, Farnham and Milford Hospitals have a special place in the hearts of the communities they serve and it will be important to ensure those communities are happy with the change in management and the opportunities that presents.
