Clinical Assessment and Treatment Services (CATS)

Patients deserve quick and convenient assessment, diagnosis and treatment. Our clinical assessment and treatment services (CATS) deliver this in a single service.

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. The result is that patients have a much better experience, pressure is eased on busy hospital outpatients, the NHS receives better value for money and waiting times are reduced.

Each CATS is designed around local needs. In Greater Manchester, for example, we needed to deliver extra capacity across the city in a number of specialties while bringing care closer to people’s homes.
