To avoid a reduction in the number of beds available while essential maintenance is carried out on Breamore Ward Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust will temporarily transfer some patient care to part of South Newton Hospital.
The 6-8 week arrangement will see NHS care being provided by Salisbury Foundation Trust staff for up to 26 patients across two wards at South Newton Hospital. Subject to regulatory approval patient care will begin from 22nd September.
CEO Stacey Hunter 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 who have worked in partnership with us.”
