Benefits to Private hospitals

Guaranteed service

Employing 45 clinical vascular scientists, IVS can offer a comprehensive service seven days per week, including an on-call service everyday from 9am to 4pm. Independent hospitals avoid the fixed costs of employing permanent staff, salary, 13.8% NI contribution, pension contributions and staff benefits. By invoicing per scan monthly in arrears, Independent hospitals only pay for work performed, protecting them from variations in throughput and guaranteeing a profit share from each investigation.
