Delivering private healthcare as it should be

Delivering world class healthcare is complex. We know what we do best and we know our limitations. We partner with others whose expertise complements ours to jointly deliver world class care.

HCA Healthcare UK is one of the leading private healthcare providers in the UK, and we continually work on improving our services, and providing patients with the high quality, one-to-one care they value. Our high clinical standards are a given, but it is the care we give that means 98% of patients recommend HCA UK*.

HCA UK patients can be confident we provide a quality and depth of service that no one else can.

Rated Outstanding  by CQC

HCA Healthcare UK has a higher proportion of CQC ‘Outstanding’ ratings than any other private hospital group in the UK, with a total of 15 ‘Outstanding’ locations and 13 ‘Good’ locations.

We have been positively rated across the board for our caring and professional staff, for being responsive to individual patient needs, and for the quality of our patient outcomes.

Everyone matters

We welcome and care for patients from all backgrounds. We offer culturally appropriate meals, facilities and treatment, and can provide interpreters when needed.

International patients said that their 'specific cultural and religious needs had been met in full by the service' - CQC Report 2017, Harley Street at UCH (now HCA UK at UCH).
HCA UK have looked after our whole family. We can't thank them enough.

Safety first and foremost

Monitoring standards of care

"We are constantly monitoring what we do, to make sure that our standards are as high as possible, and to identify whether anything needs changing." Dr Tom Newsom-Davis, Consultant Oncologist at Leaders in Oncology Care
Dr Alison Jones


Sharing our knowledge

"In private practice, we can often use new drugs before they are available on the NHS. This is why we do informative audits as part of clinical governance work, which involves sharing our experience of these drugs, their side-effects and results with other health professionals so that they can benefit from our work to help their patients." Dr Alison Jones, Consultant Medical Oncologist at The Wellington Hospital and Leaders in Oncology Care (LOC)



Dr Andy Petros


High quality staff and training

"All our junior doctors are working or have worked recently in NHS teaching hospitals and it is very important that they bring with them the gold standard clinical practices in the NHS." Dr Andy Petros, Consultant Paediatric Intensivist and Director of The Portland Hospital Paediatric Intensive Care Unit
Mr Arjun Shankar


Being prepared for every eventuality

"Making sure there are always doctors available in every specialism should a patient take a turn for the worse or develop complications is a key part of patient safety." Mr Arjun Shankar, Consultant General Surgeon and Medical Director of The Lister Hospital



Dr Phillip Harrison


Taking action to safeguard patients

"It’s about having an early warning system in place so that we can constantly monitor what is happening and step in to make sure the highest standards of care are provided." Dr Phillip Harrison, Consultant Liver Specialist, London Bridge Hospital

Working as a team to provide the right treatment with the best outcomes

No other UK provider can match our global scale, breadth and depth of knowledge and expertise. We treat 27 million people each year across our global network, and we learn from each and every one, so that we can deliver world-class outcomes to each patient that we care for
