Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre (SMTC) is a state-of-the-art surgical facility. It provides specialist orthopaedics, ophthalmology, general surgery and endoscopy as well as multi-modality imaging and diagnostics.
At SMTC, we are dedicated to providing a personalised and efficient healthcare service to you.
Our priority is to ensure that you receive timely, high quality treatment, in pleasant, clean and comfortable surroundings. In this section we have provided some information which we hope will be useful to you before, during and after your treatment at Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre.
We have a range of single ensuite rooms and same sex shared ensuite rooms for patients. We know it is important to be able to keep in touch with friends and family and feel at home during your treatment and so we have free WiFi access for patients and we can also offer free telephone calls. Each of the beds in the treatment centre has a private television so that you can watch your favourite TV shows while you are rceovering from treatment or waiting beforehand. If you would like religious or spiritual support during your treatment we can provide access to an appropriate person from a variety of faiths and denominations.
We want your stay to be as pleasant as possible and understand the importance of seeing friends and family during your treatment, so we have a flexible visiting policy so that you and your visitors can work out what best suits you and your treatment schedule. We would ask all visitors to report to the Nurses Station upon arrival on the first floor to ensure that the patient is available.
An excellent example of how well and quickly an ITC can integrate into the local health economy exists in Shepton Mallet where the ITC has treated 2500 patients since opening in July 2005.
