Jonathan Djanogly comments on Circle Partnership’s decision to terminate its contract to manage Hinchingbrooke Hospital


9th January 2015

Jonathan Djanogly, the Member of Parliament for the Huntingdon Constituency today commented on Circle Partnership’s decision to terminate its contract to manage Hinchingbrooke Hospital.

Mr Djanogly said:

“I was very surprised and sorry to hear the news of Circle giving its notice to end its contract.

“Firstly and most importantly, is the need to provide continuity of the excellent healthcare provided in the hospital by its hardworking and dedicated staff. I have had reassurance today from the Chief Executive of the Hospital and its trustees that they will do all they can to ensure that this is the case. Circle have also confirmed to me that they have every intention of ensuring a smooth transfer of service. In addition, I spoke today with Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, who also assured me that Department of Health will do everything necessary to ensure continuity of service.

“It is clearly the case that Circle’s contract was not fit for purpose, As to why this is the case, and I suspect there are many reasons involving all parties, is an issue that will require careful consideration by NHS England and Department of Health.

“I am strongly of the belief that health service provision, not least given current financial constraints, will never be a case of just public or private. The important thing is to find the best of both sectors to provide the best service for the people that matter here, the patients. What happens in terms of Hinchingbrooke’s future management will be a key issue for me over the coming weeks. I intend to follow this matter very closely.”
