Venturi Cardiology has opened its first clinical facility at Orbit’s Birchwood business park in Warrington to champion cardiac diagnostic services across the North West.
The independent cardiology specialists have taken 2,475 sq ft at 4, The Square on one of the region’s most popular business parks to make it easier for patients to get rapid access to clinical consultations and advanced diagnostic investigations.
Set up by three consultant cardiologists, Dr Scott Murray, Dr Jonathan Hasleton and Dr Tom Heseltine, Venturi’s services are open to NHS patients, self-funded patients and those with private medical insurance.
The company also offers a range of packages for companies that value the well-being of their staff.
The new clinic has had a specialist fit out to provide a comfortable and relaxed environment for patients and access to state of the art diagnostic equipment.
Consultant cardiologists can give patients a range of tests (from an ECG to CT scan) in the space of an hour and a half, getting the answers they need when it matters.
Venturi will have around 15 staff employed at the new clinic. Its proximity to the M62 and M6 road network and plentiful free parking means patients from Cheshire, Merseyside, Manchester and beyond can get to the facility quickly.
Managing Director Lisa Gregory said everyone was delighted with the site and the space and it was already making a difference to patient experience. She explained:
“Patients are understandably often anxious about coming for a heart check-up. However, arriving at the clinic really does put them at ease. It is a very welcoming space, modern, easy to access with great parking, quite unlike many hospital environments which patients can find difficult. The feedback has been amazing.”
The company expects the new facility to help meet a growing need for corporate packages.
Lisa Gregory again: “Most company health care packages are reactive, so only really used when there is a problem. We offer a preventative service, giving staff an accurate assessment of their risk of heart disease over the next five to ten years.”
Orbit Development’s role in the move was described as second to none by the senior team at Venturi. Lisa commented: “They really understood what we were trying to achieve and facilitated the move – which was an important first for Venturi – with great efficiency. They worked flexibly throughout the fit out process too which was appreciated.”
Orbit’s Director Paul Hubball commented: “It’s been a pleasure working with Lisa and her team to provide just the right accommodation for all aspects of a clinical experience. We wish them every success at Birchwood – it’s a great location for them.”
