Care UK is the UK’s leader in CATS, with four services around the UK that take a modern approach to healthcare. Patients have fast access to services based in their local community, and because their assessment, any diagnostic scans that they need, and their treatment can often take place in a single appointment, their treatment easily fits in to their busy lifestyle.
