A different kind of private healthcare company

Unlike other private healthcare providers, we can look after you no matter how complex or acute your condition. We cover all aspects of medicine, including cardiac and cancer care, paediatrics, orthopaedics, rehabilitation and obstetrics. And — unlike other private providers — we have intensive care units in all of our hospitals. Uniquely, we also partner with the NHS to provide care in private patient units within large NHS teaching hospitals. We’re proud to share technology and expertise with them to advance care for all patients.
Other private healthcare providers tend to run facilities that offer services equivalent to an NHS district general hospital. We aim to provide the quality of care of a teaching hospital – but better.

Outstanding hospitals

HCA UK is the only private hospital provider in London to have 'outstanding' ratings from the Care Quality Commission (CQC). 50% of HCA UK’s inspected facilities have been rated 'outstanding' over the last 12 months. Out of all the independent hospitals inspected so far by the CQC, only 6% were rated 'outstanding', putting HCA UK in a different league to others. We were 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.

Caring for you like family

HCA was founded in 1968 by a cardiologist who believed in truly patient-centred care. This ethos of compassion, respect and inclusion is at the heart of HCA UK. We treat our patients like we would want our own loved ones to be treated.

Don't wait, pay for yourself

You don’t need health insurance to have fast access to our top consultants, extensive range of treatments, diagnostic tests and surgical procedures at our world-class facilities.
One nurse just sat with me and held my hand so that I didn’t feel alone. It was very reassuring.

Investment in innovation

We continually invest into the latest technologies and state-of-the-art equipment, so that we can give our patients the most accurate and least invasive diagnosis and treatment. We also offer access to HCA UK’s clinical trials and genetic testing at our Sarah Cannon Research Institute, giving patients more options and improved outcomes.

Better outcomes for patients

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 of these encounters, so that we can deliver world-class outcomes to each individual patient that we care for.
