Blatchford Awarded Birmingham Community Healthcare Contract
Posted on 3rd December 2018
Blatchford is delighted to announce a new contract to deliver prosthetic, orthotic and technician services on behalf of Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust. Awarded for five years, the contract starts in April 2019.
The contract will involve the largest centre in Birmingham as well as two partner centres in Wolverhampton and Stoke. We will work within a multi-disciplinary team to deliver services to patients with all levels of amputation and limb loss; the orthotic service will provide care to patients whose needs are deemed specialist and have not been met by the district orthotic services within the West Midlands.
We look forward to welcoming the clinical and technical team from the largest centre in Birmingham as well as the two partner centres in Wolverhampton and Stoke.
This follows our recent success in achieving new contracts to deliver wheelchair services to patients in Rotherham and to deliver specialist wheelchair services to patients in Mid Nottinghamshire.
