One of the UK’s leading private independent providers of diagnostic services into the NHS has acquired Preston’s Sandon House Clinic for an undisclosed fee.
Under the terms of the deal Preston-based Bespoke Healthcare has secured the business together with an option to purchase the CQC-registered premises in Millennium City Park.
The site includes two state-of-the-art theatre suites, two further dedicated treatment and consulting rooms and private recovery areas, as well as all equipment.
Sandon House Clinic currently operates as a cosmetic surgery company.
Founded in 2008 by Peter Paterson, who leaves the business with immediate effect but retains sites in Penwortham and Lancaster, the seven-strong team of practice nurses and office staff, who possess well over 80 years experience, all remain.
Plans for the site include a detailed enhancement of the surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments to include both private and NHS offerings, plus a move into investigative, operational and further diagnostic services.
Gwam Rajiah, managing director of the Bespoke Healthcare Group, said: “Since the company first privately undertook complex diagnostic tests into the NHS in 2006 we have always delivered a reduction in healthcare costs while improving patient care.
“Our own operational premises was the next logical step.”
He added: “With Sandon House Clinic we will not only deliver the most professional, health conscious, private cosmetic treatments in the country.
“We have the regional facilities and the expertise to deliver investigations, diagnostic services and operations which are tailored to the needs of the North West NHS community.”
