Alliance Medical-led consortium wins PET-CT contract

The Collaborative Network has won a ten-year NHS contract to provide PET-CT scanning services across 30 locations in England.

The consortium is led by Alliance Medical and includes The Christie NHS Foundation Trust as well as local NHS and charitable providers and some academic institutions.

Alliance Medical will invest £80 million over the life of the contract to improve the infrastructure of the service, which includes replacing mobile PET-CT services with static sites.

The company has also pledged to increase the number of sites services are provided from, too.

Training for radiologists, technologists and radiographers will also be provided through a School of Oncology hosted by The Christie.

Guy Blomfield, Alliance Medical chief executive (pictured), said: “We strongly believe that by providing better access to PET-CT and improving the current pathway, we can support NHS England’s objective of improving cancer survivorship. While it is important to provide a service that is fit for purpose now, we have also made a commitment to NHS England to work with, among others, the Clinical Reference Group to evaluate emerging technologies and radioactive tracers such that evidence-based decisions on service developments can be made.”
