We're proud that world-leading consultants choose to practise across our network of hospitals and outpatient centres. We know that our consultants are the key to our success.

In recognition of this, we aim to make sure that they have all the support they need, so they can focus on delivering the highest level of patient care. Our facility-based consultant liaison managers along with our central Consultant Credentialing Department are key to this support.

To apply for Practising Privileges at one of our hospitals, you should contact the Consultant Liaison Office of that hospital directly with your CV and an outline of your proposed scope of practice.

Based on your area of speciality, our consultant liaison managers will be able to guide you further and help facilitate your application. Applications will be reviewed by the office of the Chief Executive Officer, and you will be invited to meet them to discuss your application. If supported by the CEO, the Medical Advisory Committee will consider all applications for Practising Privileges.

If your application is successful, our centralised Consultant Credentialing Department will assist in the maintenance of your credentials throughout your time with us.

A number of our consultants choose to practise across more than one facility in our network of hospitals. Once Practising Privileges have been granted at one hospital, the application for other facilities can be streamlined by providing only facility-specific documentation along with any credentials that need to be renewed.

If you're an existing HCA Healthcare UK consultant and you need to update your credentials, please contact the Consultant Credentialing Department via email at credentials@hcahealthcare.co.uk or call 020 7563 4282.
