InHealth has expanded its “direct to test” community endoscopy service in Oxfordshire with the opening of an additional state-of-the-art Community Health Clinic in Bicester. The clinic opened on Monday 22nd October and houses a spacious consulting room, a procedure room equipped with high-end endoscopy equipment, 2 recovery rooms with beds and a rest area with reclining chairs for patient comfort and safety.
InHealth has been delivering community endoscopy services to the local population for over 5 years and are the first independent provider to deliver services under the new ” 2 week wait” cancer pathway from the new unit, helping Oxfordshire CCG to meet their objectives to improve local access, bring care closer to home, improve cancer outcomes, reduce delays in diagnostic pathways and integrate care pathways between providers. Working closely with primary care clinicians and commissioners we support the management of patients within the community, allowing secondary care services to spend more time concentrating on complex pathology and serious investigations.
The new location will also provide an Echocardiography and Ambulatory Rhythm Monitoring service.
