Nuffield Health named private hospital group of the year

The largest independent not-for-profit UK health and wellbeing organisation wins Health Investor Award.

Nuffield Health picked up the award for Private Hospital Group of the Year at the Health Investor Awards 2017. The award is designed to recognise outstanding contribution to healthcare over the past 12 months, through innovation and excellence in healthcare products and services.

With a network of 31 hospitals across the UK, Nuffield Health has concentrated on enhancing patient satisfaction and quality care across the organisation.  In 2016, one of our hospitals - the Nuffield Health Cambridge Hospital - became the first independent hospital to receive the highest possible rating of excellence with an outstanding rating from the regulator the Care Quality Commission. Of the 26 hospitals reviewed by regulators to date, 24 of them have received a rating of good or outstanding.

In accepting the award, Chris Blackwell-Frost, Chief Customer Officer said: “Nuffield Health is honoured to receive the Private Hospital Group of the Year award. It is a delight to accept this on behalf of the hardworking and dedicated teams across our hospitals network, who everyday ensure our patients’ interests are their priority.”

Nuffield Health was selected from a finalist group of six private hospital groups within the UK. The finalists included a mixture of not-for-profit, privately owned and publicly listed organisations.
