Nuffield Health Edinburgh Hospital, formally known as The Edinburgh Clinic, was set up in 2008 and offers fast access to outpatient appointments, diagnostic services and day surgery. We are located close to the heart of Scotland’s capital and within easy reach of the city centre.
Our aim is to provide first-class independent healthcare for the local community. Patients have described the hospital as ‘the hospital that feels like home’. The hospital is situated in a beautiful Victorian building, which was once a grand family house. We have kept the stunning architecture and welcoming atmosphere, but installed the latest medical equipment.
