What is Patient Choice?

Patient Choice is a government initiative introduced to give NHS patients more choice about where, when and what time they are treated. NHS patients in England who require hospital treatment can now choose any participating hospital in the country that can meet their needs. Fulwood Hall Hospital is contracted by the NHS to provide a wide range of treatments including Orthopaedics, General Surgery, ENT, Ophthalmology, Gynaecology, Spinal Surgery and Urology. For more information or to check if you are able to attend the hospital via the NHS please contact us.
