Our facilities, combined with modern technology and on-site support services, enable our consultants to undertake a wide range of procedures from routine investigations to complex surgery. 

We continue to pride ourselves on high standards of care, and are delighted to have been recognised as  'Good' by the Care Quality Commission, with an 'Outstanding' rating awarded in 2019 for our Private MRI Ultrasound and xray service. Our Consultant Specialists are supported by a team of caring and professional medical staff, with dedicated nursing teams and a Resident Medical Officer on duty 24 hours a day, providing care within a friendly and comfortable environment.

Appointments for most specialities are available within 48 hours and are arranged at a time to suit you. We see private insured and self-funding patients, as well as providing treatment for a number of specialities on the NHS, please speak to your GP regarding your patient choice on where you receive treatment.  Interest free finance options are available for self-funding patients to help make the cost of treatment more affordable.Those with private medical insurance should check their policy details with their provider prior to booking any appointments.

Patients can self-refer for a majority of our services without the need to see your GP. We also offer online booking with the majority of our consultants, allowing you to arrange your appointment without needing to speak to anyone.

From the moment you contact the hospital our staff are here to help and you will be greeted with a friendly smile. We provide information and reassurance about your diagnosis and treatment and whether you are attending as an outpatient or being admitted for surgery, our staff and processes are designed to put you at ease.
