Ensuring exceptional care for you and your family

We want to give you the highest possible standards of care. To do this we put ‘clinical governance’ at our core. This simply refers to the work that goes on in the background to ensure that the checks, balances and structures are in place to ensure you receive the best care at all of our facilities.

How clinical governance works at HCA Healthcare UK

We have a rigorous framework in place to ensure that you get the highest possible standards of care. This means making sure our doctors, nurses and therapists are up-to-date with the latest medical knowledge and expertise, and that our staff work as a team to give you exceptional care tailored to your individual needs. We monitor our patients’ experiences and outcomes, and if something does go wrong, lessons are learned to prevent it from happening again.

Our clinical governance is driven by a team of the UK’s leading doctors. All of these doctors choose to treat their private patients at HCA Healthcare UK hospitals because they want to give their patients the best possible care, using the latest technology. Many of them hold senior positions at some of the nation’s leading teaching hospitals, and their breadth and depth of medical knowledge and expertise is shared across our facilities.

Clinical governance is a system of processes at a hospital which provide assurance that we have patient safety at the heart of the organisation
