Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Aggressive competition for Cancer services from neighbouring Cancer Centres and/or private providers.
In terms of DGH services, in the Forward Plan the trust says that it does not see competitive threats:
The Trust has an excellent relationship with local GPs, and does not expect to see a significant competitive threat arising in its core catchment from other acute trusts
But it then goes on to identify a possible threat from Virgin:
The acquisition of Surrey Community Health by Virgin does offer some potential competitive threat (as well as collaborative opportunity). The Trust will seek to manage this by building high quality relationships with the new management team, and working productively with them in the context of the Locality Transformation Board
The trust says that it expects to expand its own services:
The Trust has identified opportunities itself to expand market share in the Cobham/Leatherhad/Dorking area, and to the south of the recently opened Hindhead Tunnel
