Treatment centre to close

31st August 2006

Ravenscourt Park Hospital, one of the first-wave diagnostic and treatment centres (DTC) set up to cut orthopaedic waiting lists has been forced to close due to a lack of patients. 

Part of Hammersmith Hospitals trust in west London, it began as a private hospital before being set up as a DTC in 2002. The trust announced it had decided to close the hospital because it is not taking enough patients to be cost effective. The hospital needs a throughput of 12,000 patients a year but has only been running at 50 per cent capacity since it reopened as a DTC.
