The Chiswick Nursing Centre recently played host to 20 doctors, consultants and physicians from the Shanghai province of China.
We were part of a week-long educational tour that also took in local NHS hospitals and GP surgeries. It afforded the healthcare professionals good opportunities to see UK facilities first hand and to learn how the UK healthcare system works.
Seeing our services in action at The Chiswick helped them to understand the complexities of running a major clinical service that meets the needs of patients of varying ages and with differing healthcare requirements.
They were suitably impressed with the high quality and extent of our services, which exceed those available in China. They were also keen to better understand the various ways in which provision can be funded within the UK.
Having toured the building, seen what we have to offer close up, and talk to staff and residents, the group headed off to ‘Harrods’ for some last minute souvenir and gift shopping before their flight back to China.
Centre Director, Steve Winter said: “We always welcome the opportunity to show anyone our wonderful facilities and encourage any potential new customers to visit us before making an informed decision to come and stay. Hosting a group of medical professionals from China has been a great way to spread the word about The Chiswick Nursing Centre to a worldwide audience.”
