BUPA backs out of DH deal8th February 2007
BUPA has backed out of a deal with the Department of Health to provide diagnostic services after failing to agree terms.
The independent healthcare provider was set to provide the specialist services in the South East of England, after being selected as the preferred bidder in August 2006.
Both BUPA and the DH have said they are disappointed that negotiations failed.
Private provider Clinicentre, together with Lodestone and Carillon, are reportedly now in discussions to fill the gap.
Elsewhere, Atos Origin will provide diagnostic services to patients in the South West, Mercury Healthcare in the West Midlands, and Alliance Medical in the North East. Amicus InHealth has been awarded preferred bidder status in London and the East of England.
