Surgical services provider secures five-year agreements with NHS

Sheffield-headquartered One Health Group, an independent provider of surgical services to the NHS, has confirmed that two of the largest NHS commissioners with which it works have renewed their contracts.

It is expected these new agreements will run for five years rather than one – which has been the case previously – and will cover around 4,000 new patients and 2,000 surgical procedures per year.

The two contracts are with Lincolnshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) and South Yorkshire ICB, which also acts as One Health’s lead commissioner for Derby and Derbyshire and West Yorkshire ICBs.

Under these agreements, One Health will continue to provide free care to NHS patients over a longer term in Doncaster, Barnsley, Rotherham, Sheffield, Wakefield, Kirklees, Leeds, Bradford and most of Lincolnshire.

One Health has worked with the majority of these NHS commissioners for over 10 years.

Prior to these agreements being established, One Health operated under multiple, individual 12-month Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) contracts with each one being renewed every April.

Following the establishment of ICBs, and the abolition of CCGs in July 2022, the annual contracts continued, but incorporated wider regions that were previously covered by the individual CCG contracts.

Adam Binns – CEO of One Health Group, said: “These longer-term commitments are a clear indication of the value that One Health delivers to the NHS’ infrastructure and also demonstrate the vital role we play in its supply chain.

“Most importantly, having this certainty in place will allow us to focus on activities that make a difference to the lives of patients as we will have the confidence to consider new investments in facilities and additional support services at a time when central government public funding is challenging and scarce.”
