With a heritage of over 40 years of caring for patients, HCA Healthcare UK operates award-winning hospitals including The Wellington Hospital, The Princess Grace Hospital, and The Portland Hospital, as well as a network of outpatient clinics, diagnostic centres, and fertility clinics.

As part of HCA Healthcare, one of the largest healthcare providers in the world, HCA Healthcare UK can offer patients access to internationally renowned consultants, pioneering treatments, and state-of-the-art facilities. The group’s hospitals have been consistently recognised for their high standards of patient care, winning awards in fields ranging from cancer care to maternity services.

At the heart of HCA Healthcare UK’s approach is a commitment to personalised, compassionate care for every patient. Doctors and nurses work as part of multi-disciplinary teams, liaising closely between specialties to ensure patients benefit from fully joined-up care. The latest technologies and techniques are used to optimise outcomes while always maintaining a focus on the individual behind each case.

HCA Healthcare UK prides itself on providing patients with clear information and transparency at all stages. Staff take time to discuss options and address any questions or concerns, while easy-to-understand treatment plans help patients feel in control of their care. Alongside clinical excellence, facilities also prioritise comfort, privacy and dignity.

With private healthcare plans now being used by over 4 million people in the UK, HCA Healthcare UK is expanding its services to meet increasing demand. New centres of excellence are being developed to widen availability of specialised treatments across the country. The group is also adopting new technologies, such as robotic surgery and genomic testing to offer patients the very latest medical innovations. Continued investment aims to recruit over 2,000 more expert clinicians in the coming years.
