A NEW contract has been awarded for running the St Mary’s Treatment Centre in Portsmouth.
NHS Portsmouth has awarded the contract to the existing providers Care UK. It means the centre’s future has been secured for a further three years.
The treatment centre, on the St Mary’s Hospital site, provides a walk-in service, a minor injuries unit, diagnostics facilities, day surgery and diabetic retinopathy services – helping take pressure off Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham.
Nine firms expressed interest in running it.
