Following Court action, from Monday 29 July 2019 Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) assumed control of the Nottingham Treatment Centre from the private company, Circle.
Circle had operated the Treatment Centre, its largest in Britain, for 11 years from 2008. However, the company’s operation of the centre was not without controversy; historically Nottingham was a centre of excellence for dermatology (skin diseases) but in December 2014 it was announced 6 out of 8 Consultant doctors had left rather than transfer to Circle.
It is reported the Consultants said the company had no experience of the highly specialist work they provided.
Circle’s control of the Nottingham Treatment Centre has ended but Freeths clinical negligence lawyers continue to represent numerous clients in their claims following harm suffered by them in connection with care provided whilst Circle operated the Treatment Centre.
As clinical negligence solicitors, we often represent people who have suffered avoidable injury due to failures of medical care and delayed or inappropriate treatment. We know how difficult life can be for those who have suffered in this way and for their families. We are able to assist by ensuring they have access to the services they require, have the funds to pay for private care allowing them to live their lives as comfortably as they possibly can and are compensated for the harm suffered. We also represent the families of those who have sadly died in such circumstances.

NUH chief executive Tracy Taylor, said it had "always seen" the centre "as an exciting opportunity to develop innovative services". She added: "We are disappointed that there have been so many delays to the award of this contract and completion of the procurement process as a result of legal challenges. "However, this legal ruling means we can now work proactively with our partners, including Circle, to ensure a smooth transition."
