Why you should choose us

If you would like to find out more about our private services, the first stage is to contact our private patients team for a no-commitment consultation. 

When you contact us, it's helpful if you can have details of the procedure or treatment you are hoping to book ready, as well as the name and address of your GP and any other relevant information.

If you decide to take this further you will need to be referred to our services by a doctor – whether your local GP or another one that you have seen in a hospital. Typically this will be a referral directly to a specific doctor through a letter from your doctor.

We are a group of five hospitals globally recognised as leaders in excellence and innovation

Cutting edge technology, specialist staff and our emphasis on safe and compassionate care means that you benefit will receive the best possible treatment. Our services are continuously improved, due to being a teaching and research hospital, and we have thought and practice leaders in many fields.

One of the busiest trusts in the country

We are one of the busiest trusts in the country, accounting for 1.5% of all hospital activity in England. People come from all over for testing and treatment in our specialist centres. Patients benefit from the volume of patients we see, with a well-established link between clinical specialism, high activity and improved outcomes. Our teams have the experience to cope with all eventualities.

Our hospitals must meet the highest standards of clinical oversight set by the NHS. Unlike at many private hospitals, we have the fullest and safest configuration of staff 24/7 as well as comprehensive intensive and high dependency care. This means that in the unlikely event that you need further care or emergency treatment, this can be easily provided for. Indeed, we are the back up for many private hospitals if something goes wrong there.

Our staff are our biggest asset

Our staff are our biggest asset and, as a private patient of ours, you will have access to a multidisciplinary team who will put you first and consider all the options. You will be treated as an individual and will be given every opportunity to discuss your treatment and your planned care.

Your stay with us

If you need to stay with us, you will have your own room, with an ensuite accessible bathroom. Rooms are each equipped with their own TV, chairs and access to WiFi. Fruit, biscuits and tea / coffee are provided in every room and refreshed daily. Our menu choices, which vary every day, offer a range of different meals according to your taste and dietary requirements.

Each of our hospitals celebrates a rich and varied history – and many are located in convenient locations. For instance, St Bartholomew’s is London’s oldest hospital, located in the City of London near St Paul’s Cathedral.
