The transfer of Clinicenta services to East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust

The transfer of Clinicenta services to East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust

Following discussion and negotiation, the Department of Health, East and North Hertfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), NHS England and Clinicenta have come to a mutual agreement about the future management of services at the Lister Surgicentre.

The services currently provided and managed by Clinicenta will transfer to East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust. The transfer is likely to take place over the next few weeks on a date to be finalised.  

There will be no break in service during the transfer and patients who are currently receiving treatment at the Surgicentre should continue to attend their appointments in the usual way. The Lister Surgicentre buildings and equipment will be retained by the local NHS for continued use by patients.

Clinicenta and East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust will be consulting appropriately with all staff affected up until the time of transfer to ensure a smooth transition for the staff and to ensure patient care is not affected.

Further information around the timescale for these changes to be implemented will be issued shortly.
