Welcome to Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre

Our treatment centre is run by leading health and social care provider, Care UK, on behalf of the NHS.

Who we treat

We only treat NHS patients and we’re focused on providing the best possible, personalised care to the people of Devon and Cornwall. We believe in treating you as quickly as possible – helping you to get better, faster.

What we treat

We specialise in joint replacements and minor orthopaedic surgery, including hip and knee replacements, shoulder repair and hand and elbow surgery. We also provide a cataract service and diagnostic services, using the latest MRI technology. For more information on our specialties view our services page.

Receiving treatment at our centre

If you need treatment, we’d be delighted if you made Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre your choice. To receive treatment with us, you will need a referral from your GP.

 

 

 

Patient confidentiality

Care UK adheres to The Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) which is an Act of Parliament of the United Kingdom which defines UK law on the processing of data on identifiable living people. It is the main piece of legislation that governs the protection of personal data in the UK.

National 18 week rules

The NHS Constitution gives patients the right to access services within maximum waiting times of 18 weeks.  Your 18 weeks waiting time starts on the day the hospital receives the referral letter or on the day you make the booking for your first appointment, via the e-Referral Service.
