Nuffield Health named Private Hospital Group of the Year at Laing Buisson Awards

Nuffield Health picked up the award for Private Hospital Group of the Year at the Laing Buisson Awards 2017. The award celebrates high quality care and continuous improvement, as well as innovation and excellence in going above and beyond.

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 its hospitals – the Nuffield Health Cambridge – became the first independent hospital to receive the highest possible rating of excellence with an ‘Outstanding’ rating from the regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC). In 2017 Nuffield Health Leeds Hospital and Nuffield Health Tees Hospital also received an ‘Outstanding’ CQC rating. To date 94% of Nuffield Health hospitals reviewed by regulators have achieved a rating of good or outstanding.

In accepting the award, Steve Gray, CEO at Nuffield Health said: “Nuffield Health is honoured to receive the Private Hospital Group of the Year. It is a delight to accept this on behalf of the hardworking and dedicated teams across our hospitals network, who every day ensure our patients’ interests are their priority.”

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