We’re the largest independent provider of NHS services in the country.

Working closely with the NHS, we deliver more than 50 services throughout the UK.

We’re bound by the same standards and measures of success as the NHS. Our governance and accountability procedures are the same as those used by the NHS. This means the quality of care we provide at least meets the high levels of service you expect from the NHS.

What we bring is an unrelenting focus on delivering the highest quality services, on leading change, and on driving innovation in primary and secondary care and mental health services.

Above all we’re determined to deliver healthcare that answer the needs – and exceed the expectations – of the UK population in the twenty-first century.
