18 Week Support

Vanguard and 18 Week Support can combine services to create a Referral to Treatment Time Solution. Enabling hospitals to easily and cost-effectively increase their elective procedure capacity, without adversely impacting existing staff or facilities. This unique collaboration is an end-to-end service providing hospitals with relief from capacity pressures, consequently reducing delays for patients and improving outcomes.
18 Week Support was set up in 2014 by Dr Conal Perrett, an experienced Consultant with over 20 years’ NHS experience. In partnership with NHS Trusts, 18 Week Support help to manage waiting lists by providing cost-effective services for both outpatients and day surgery throughout the UK. They do this by delivering a fully managed service, including an entire clinical team, to deliver services utilising local facilities at Trust sites.
