Hospital extends services available to the community

Posted onPosted on 19th Nov

Patients attending Newark Hospital will be able to benefit from a range of ear surgical procedures that can now take place thanks to recent investments in the site.

As part of Sherwood Forest Hospital Trust’s commitment to investing in Newark, the hospital’s services are being expanded to include ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgical elective procedures.

One patient to recently benefit from the new ear surgical service was Ravinder Manku, 60, from Edwalton, near Nottingham, but chose to be treated at Newark.

She had surgery to repair a perforation in the eardrum and remove any infection, which will allow her to hear much better.

Ravinder (pictured) said: “I would recommend Newark Hospital to anyone; the care was outstanding.

“The staff did such a good job of making me feel comfortable.

“I was really nervous about the procedure, but they kept me well informed and really looked after me, keeping me calm throughout.

“I found the hospital atmosphere to be a really calm, clean environment and to be able to come in and be home within the same day is brilliant. Thank you to everyone who was involved in my care.”

The programme lead for the Newark Hospital Transformation Programme, Richard Mills, said: “Since the beginning of 2020 we have invested more than £5millon into Newark Hospital, which includes investments in the site and equipment as well as additional staffing and clinical supplies to develop and enhance the services we offer.

“We continue to work with our partners to enhance the offer at Newark and it is brilliant to see the new ENT service taking shape and seeing the positive impact that it has on our patients.

“I can’t wait to see further services develop as our plan for Newark Hospital continues to be put into action.”
