COMMERCIAL: Provision of out of hours services in Northamptonshire has been transferred from Nenedoc to South East Health Ltd.

According to a press statement, South East Health Ltd has taken over the delivery of the GP out of hours service to the population of Northamptonshire. The new service will be called Northamptonshire Out of Hours.

South East Health Ltd and NHS Northamptonshire have worked over the last month to ensure that the implementation of the service runs as smoothly as possible, the press statement said.

South East Health Ltd said it recognised the importance of “a local, knowledgeable workforce delivering quality standards of care to patients” and has therefore engaged with, and retained, local staff from the previous provider Nenedoc.
