Siemens Healthineers and Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH) have signed a partnership agreement to provide specialist cardiology and interventional radiology services. The partnership is intended to ensure the availability of innovative and state-of-the-art medical technology in the hospital for a period of ten years which includes technical support and on-site service.
Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s 7,000 employees provide acute hospital care to more than 822,500 people from Norfolk, from neighbouring counties and from further afield. Patients are referred by around 100 local GP practices but also from other acute hospitals around the country.
The Trust provides a full range of acute clinical services, including more specialist services such as oncology and radiotherapy, neonatology, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, rheumatology, paediatric medicine and surgery.
Siemens Healthineers will equip the Trust with state-of-the-art medical technology as part of a multi-vendor equipment-based solution.
“Siemens Healthineers ensures the availability of the equipment, technological updates and full coverage of the technical service, thus allowing the NNUH Trust to develop high-quality patient-focused healthcare activities, whilst also improving operational workflow and efficiencies,” said Nancy West, Head of Enterprise Services at Siemens Healthineers GB&I.
The partnership includes, in addition to the provision of equipment, technological updates and comprehensive maintenance throughout the ten years. All of this is guaranteed by an onsite operations team.
With the development of the concept of Value Partnerships, Siemens Healthineers is choosing to pursue flexible enduring business relationships that ensure the reduction of operational complexity through one single contact for all medical device-related topics and budgetary surety. Value Partnerships allow healthcare providers to increase enterprise-wide value in order to meet their immediate and future goals and to focus on patient care.
