Odstock Private Care LTD hands over £100,000 which will help support NHS Services 

Odstock Private Care Ltd (OPCL) marked the first five years of supporting NHS services when it donated over £140,000 it had generated this year from private care provided on the Salisbury District Hospital site to the Trust.

Since it started in 2007, OPCL has given over £500,000 to Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust. This money has  been used to support NHS services and buy additional medical equipment.

Stephen Oxley, Chairman of OPCL said: “The Trust has always treated private patients in the hospital and their treatment is planned in such a way that it does not have an adverse effect on NHS patients.  For  patients with private medical insurance or those who choose to pay for their care and treatment, the administration of their care is handled by OPCL.  The income that this generates is put back into the hospital,  so that all patients and their families can benefit.”

Cardiology, the Wessex Laser Treatment Centre, the Clarendon Suite - a purpose built unit for private patients - and the Day Surgery Unit are all areas used by private patients and the number of people choosing to be treated privately at Salisbury District Hospital is increasing.

“By working together,  the Trust and OPCL ensure that patients choosing private healthcare can make a real and positive financial contribution to local NHS services.”

People considering private treatment at Salisbury District Hospital can discuss this option with their GP.
