Private Patients

We work to deliver the highest standards of care to all of our patients. For those who wish to access private care we offer a range of services across all specialities.

At present, the majority of our private work is delivered at St Bartholomew’s Hospital - however, we do offer private care across all of our hospital sites.

St Bartholomew's in the heart of the City of London, is one of the best-known hospitals in the world, with the richest history.

Now in brand new, state-of-the-art facilities, with a good rating from the Care Quality Commission, it brings world-class cardiac and cancer care together under one roof.

St Bartholomew’s houses the largest cardiac centre in the whole of the UK – with 10 cath labs, 10 theatres and 89 intensive care beds – and the second biggest cancer centre in London. Unlike other hospitals, it also provides 24/7 consultant on-call services.

Being treated at a world-leading centre of excellence means you are cared for by internationally-renowned doctors and nurses, using the very latest techniques and equipment.

All money received from private patients is reinvested into our hospitals to improve care and facilities for all of the patients that we treat.
