Alliance Medical wins ‘Public-Private Partnership’ at 2015 Laing and Buisson Healthcare Awards
Alliance Medical, Europe’s leading independent provider of imaging services, enjoyed a successful night on Wednesday 11th November as the company was awarded ‘Public-Private Partnership’ at the Laing and Buisson Healthcare Awards 2015, held in London last week.
The winning submission focused on Alliance Medical’s innovative and collaborative partnership developed with The Christie NHS Foundation to provide PET/CT scanning services. The partnership was recently awarded a ten year contract by NHS England to provide PET/CT scanning services at 30 locations across England.
Alliance Medical’s partnership with The Christie NHS Foundation Trust forms part of a Molecular Imaging Collaborative Network (MICN), consisting of local NHS Trusts, charitable providers and a number of leading academic institutions.
As part of the contract, Alliance Medical will invest over £80 million over the life of the contract to improve the current infrastructure, including a commitment to transition away from mobile services towards sustainable, high-quality static sites.
Dr Charles Niehaus, Group Chief Operating Officer at Alliance Medical Group, said:
“We are delighted to accept this award on behalf of the MICN. It is a great achievement which recognises the innovative solution and network that will deliver a world class PET/CT service delivered to patients through our clinically-led and collaborative approach. We are particularly proud to share the success with our colleagues at The Christie and our Italian team and look forward to working with them to further enhance diagnostic provision for patients across England.”
The Laing and Buisson Awards aim to showcase and reward organisations and individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the healthcare sector.
The awards ceremony, hosted by Michael Portillo, were held at the Lancaster House Hotel in London and was attended by over 800 of the health sector’s key figures.
