Partnering with the NHS

We have partnered in Joint Ventures with NHS trusts across the UK for over a decade. Through these partnerships we work with leading consultants to provide highly specialised private care, whilst generating valuable resources that can be re-invested into NHS services. 

As our partnerships have developed and strengthened, we have found innovative ways to collaborate with our partners from shared governance and learnings, to joint accreditations, as well as investment in people and technology, this ensures these partnerships benefit all patients.

The Harborne Hospital will provide additional capacity for University Hospitals Birmingham through dedicated space within the building, including 72 inpatient beds and access to a new radiotherapy unit. The hospital will also generate new resources that can be re-invested into NHS services.

We currently partner with University College London Hospital, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust  and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, and we are extremely proud to be partnering with University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust on this latest development.
