Why choose Parkside?

Last Updated on Monday, 18 May 2015 09:06


Why choose private treatment in an NHS hospital?
Many private hospitals provide quality care but have limited facilities. As a private patient within an NHS Foundation Trust, you are assured of a comprehensive range of facilities on-site, 24-hours a day.///


Patients at the Parkside Suite have access to Frimley Park Hospital's up-to-date clinical facilities, including all levels of intensive care. The Hospital's operating theatres are fully equipped to undertake a wide range of surgery (including specialised orthopaedic procedures, which are carried out in our clean-air theatre). Back-up is also available from a comprehensive range of on-site expert carers, including specialist nurses and therapists.


Your private consultant will always be available to see you in an emergency situation, and you will have immediate access to any additional care which may be required. This includes access to a range of diagnostic facilities. It is, therefore, very rare for patients to be transferred out of Frimley Park Hospital for specialist treatment.


Team work
In most cases, consultants who treat private patients at the Parkside Suite have developed their NHS team within the Trust. The hospital is their professional base where they work with their specialist team of fellow consultants, surgeons, anaesthetists and support staff.


Supporting the NHS
The work that we do in Parkside benefits the wider community - all profits generated by the Parkside Suite contribute to the funding of front-line NHS services in Frimley Park Hospital.
