Why Nuffield Health is different

Nuffield Health signA unique approach to health and wellbeing

With over 50 years of experience of looking after people, and a unique approach to health and wellbeing, we offer the services of over 15,000 health experts which includes access to 5,000+ consultants to help you get healthy, and stay healthy.

Our approach is to help you identify and manage your health risks to stop you getting ill in the first place. But, if you do get unwell, we provide sophisticated diagnosis and treatment options, quickly.

Because we're a charity - in fact the largest not-for-profit provider of healthcare in the UK - all of our income is invested back into our business, not paid to shareholders. This keeps us at the forefront of medical care, delivering proven and pioneering technologies to give you the best possible outcome and a shorter recovery time. 

From pre-admission to discharge, your experience with us is tailored to your individual needs. Our smart en-suite private rooms, friendly staff and delicious yet nutritious food menu, will help get you back on your feet in no time. In fact, our facilities often feel more like a hotel than a hospital, but with the added reassurance of our high clinical standards.

But it's not just our facilities that make the difference, it's our dedicated team. At Nuffield Health Hospitals, your personal care team is led by a matron, just as it has been for 54 years. The same nursing team will look after you throughout your stay, and you will see the same leading consultant from the consultation stage through to your recovery period.

Our nationwide network of private hospitals are affordable and accessible, both for people with private medical insurance and for those who wish to pay for themselves.
