Our unfaltering dedication to quality is something we are very proud of; we constantly strive to do things better for our patients. This ethos has led to innovative, evidence based developments to our procedures and ongoing improvements to the patient experience.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC), an independent regulator of health and social care in England, rated all nine of our Hospitals as ‘Outstanding’ or ‘Good’. This means you can rest assured that our services are safe, reliable and patient-focused.
We know that our performance is a vital part of trusting us to care for you, your patients or loved ones, which is why we want to share the following information with you.
- Highly experienced consultants
- Select range of specialties
- Specialist teams
By focusing on a select range of specialties, we concentrate our efforts on being the best provider of the procedures we offer; our consultants regularly perform extremely high volumes of the surgery they specialise in.
A focused range of procedures means tighter controls – with smaller wards and a close-knit family of colleagues we maintain exceptional standards of care and cleanliness and achieve outstanding results.
As a specialist hospital we only provide scheduled surgery, which means patients can feel confident that their procedure will happen as planned, without sudden cancellation because of competing priorities.
The strength of our medical leadership is extremely robust, with medical directors based at each hospital, and clinical directors employed centrally to oversee each specialty and provide support to all relevant sites.
