Statement from Circle about the Nottingham NHS Treatment Centre
We have notified Rushcliffe CCG, as the lead commissioner, that we will be withdrawing our bid to continue running the Nottingham Treatment Centre and challenging the tender process. The decision has been taken in close consultation with the clinical members of the board of Circle Nottingham.
This is not a decision that we have taken lightly. However, we do not feel that the tender – as currently proposed – provides a sustainable basis to support the delivery of high quality services at the Treatment Centre.
We are proud of our track record over the past decade in delivering high quality NHS services for the people of Nottinghamshire. We now want to work with commissioners to ensure a fair, safe and sustainable service can continue for years to come at the Nottingham Treatment Centre. We will be exploring every possible option to make this happen, including legal challenge.
Our priority will remain helping our team to deliver high quality treatment to NHS patients in Nottinghamshire, both now and we hope for long into the future.
