Our specialist consultants and expert staff are here to guide you through your treatment, from consultation to convalescence, giving you the peace of mind and the confidence to make informed decisions about your health.

We also have a resident medical officer (RMO) who is available 24 hours a day to ensure that patients are safe and care for at all times. Should your care needs change following surgery or treatment, we may need to transfer you to another hospital. This will either be to an NHS or another Circle hospital. Transfers of care only take place when absolutely necessary.

    I had a fantastic experience staying at the Bath Clinic. From the minute I was greeted on the ward to the moment I was discharged I was extremely well cared for. All members of staff from the waitresses to the aneaehnatist/surgeon were all very friendly, kind, reassuring and professional. The most difficult thing I had to think about was what food to order! I have been singing your praises to all my friends and family. Thank you to all the staff at the Bath Clinic who looked after me.

    I received excellent care from the doctor and anaesthetist and the level of nursing care is superior. My room was comfortable and administration efficient. I was served a five star lunch that put the cherry on the top of a great hospital experience.

    I recently had my gall bladder removed by Sarah Richards and her team. Every aspect of the whole procedure was covered efficiently, with care at every juncture. I would like you to pass on my gratitude to all the team, I have had no need for any of the provided pain killers, and am behaving as normal a couple of days after the op. Its astounding all my family. An example of the care in a tiny detail: Abigail my nurse for the day, when I pressed the attention button, I could hear her footsteps running down the passage to my room. Thank you to all involved.

    I was lucky enough to have had a total hip replacement at Bath Clinic 7 weeks ago and I cannot imagine a better environment in which to have this operation. The care and encouragement , as well as a top class surgeon, made for a great life - enhancing experience. I am very grateful to all involved.
