Weight loss surgery
The Countess of Chester no longer has a contract to provide regional bariatric services. The hospital and its bariatric doctors are working with NHS England specialised service commissioning leads to review and clinically prioritise the current patient waiting list it holds for these services. Arrangements are being made to establish capacity and appointment availability at other regional bariatric hospitals as a matter of priority.
The hospital intends to provide follow up outpatient care in partnership with Phoenix Health for those individuals that have previously had surgery at the hospital.
