The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust

MediServices support growing demand

New Cross Hospital located on the eastern side of Wolverhampton, is part of the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust. The 800 bed Hospital became part of The National Health Service in 1948 and is one of the largest acute and community providers in the West Midlands.

.

The Challenge

Statistics from an NHS Hospital Outpatient Activity commissioned report highlighted the increasing demand and growing pressure on NHS services.

‘In 2019-20, there were 124.9 million outpatient appointments. An increase of 1.3 percent from the previous year and 66.9 per cent from ten years ago.’

New Cross Hospital has seen a rapid growth, as it continues to expand its clinical services into other geographical areas. As a result, patient referrals have considerably risen.

The Solution

As an experienced clinical service provider, MediServices Healthcare worked closely with the Trust to provide increased capacity and lower waiting times.

In 2020 MediServices saw approximately 1540 patients at New Cross Hospital, offering timely and efficient access to high quality diagnostic services.

Our experienced team of specialist Consultants, Practitioners and Health Care Assistants were able to increase capacity by holding clinics seven days a week, including weekends and evening clinics.

.

"“We have worked with MediServices for over 12 months and developed a close working partnership with both the visiting neurophysiologists and health care assistants (HCAs). Their continuing professionalism and commitment to support our neurophysiology service has enabled our neurophysiology service in Wolverhampton to maintain waiting times and provide patients with a first-rate service. The neurophysiologists and HCAs have seamlessly integrated into the team, quickly adapting to our routine of working, but more importantly have been friendly and willing to help with any issues.

We have utilised MediServices in a variety of ways, to reduce EMG and EEG waiting lists or to cover Consultant leave and MediServices have accommodated our needs with no fuss negotiating the best arrangement to provide a complete service.

Patients have nothing but praise for all the MediServices personnel, complimenting them on their kindness and ability to make them, as patients, feel relaxed and at ease. Reports have been concise and completed quickly with referring clinicians happy with the studies performed.”
