Ramsay partners with GenesisCare

Ramsay Health Care UK has partnered with Australia’s largest radiotherapy services provider, GenesisCare, to provide cancer care to its patients.  

The private hospital group will build new cancer centres at Rivers Hospital, Sawbridgeworth, and Springfield Hospital, Chelmsford to which the hospitals will relocate their chemotherapy services. GenesisCare will then provide radiotherapy services alongside Ramsay in those facilities.

Both hospitals are due to open new cancer services in 2015.

Ramsay and GenesisCare are still evaluating whether to open new cancer centres in other regions in the UK.

As well as radiotherapy and chemotherapy services, cancer patients can also receive counselling, nutritional support, a speech pathology service and access exercise programmes from these centres. Out of hospital support will also be available where needed.  

Ramsay chief executive Mark Page (pictured) said: “Providing better and comprehensive patient care closer to home along with actively supporting and developing a cancer outcomes database is a great initiative, and at the core of Ramsay’s philosophy of people caring for people. I couldn’t be more pleased to be introducing these cutting edge services to the communities of Essex and Hertfordshire in conjunction with our partners GenesisCare.”

GenesisCare managing director Dan Collins said:  “Cancer patients need faster access to better quality care. We will make the patient journey easier and improve patient outcomes too. Ramsay and GenesisCare can combine our deep healthcare experience to make this happen right across the UK. From a radiotherapy perspective, it is pleasing to be able to offer the world’s best practice technology and the latest treatment techniques to a community in need.”
