Putting patients first

Everything we do at North West Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service is designed to make your treatment as straightforward as possible. 

We schedule your treatment for a pre-booked time so you know when it’s going to happen. Plus all of our treatments are day cases, so there are no overnight stays. It’s quick, convenient and hassle-free.

You’ll find we use the latest technology, our facilities are clean, bright and modern, and our care teams experienced and friendly. We also have strong control processes to ensure we maintain high standards of hygiene.

We survey our patients regularly to find out how we can improve what we do.

Our treatment centre is run by leading health and social care provider, Care UK, on behalf of the NHS. 

  • Care UK has never had a case of hospital-acquired MRSA in any of its facilities
  • Care UK was named as the best provider of hip replacement operations in the country in 2011 by the Dr Foster Hospital Guide, in part because of our low levels of post-operative infections
  • Care UK treatment centres regularly out-perform the top 20% of NHS hospitals in patient satisfaction surveys.
