Published on: 9 January 2024

London’s internationally renowned specialist hospitals are working in partnership to offer the most comprehensive private healthcare to patients from around the world.

London Specialist Hospitals offer innovative treatments for cardiology and respiratory conditions, cancer, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, spinal neurosurgery and nerve injuries and paediatrics.

The Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals, The Royal Marsden Private Care, Moorfields Private Eye Hospital, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, are all part of the NHS which consistently ranks as one of the best healthcare systems in the world. They offer private care services which enable any surplus to be reinvested into the NHS for the benefit of all patients. By working in partnership, London Specialist Hospitals offer patients access to world-leading experts in their respective fields, combined with shared expertise welcoming international patients.

Each hospital is home to some of the world’s leading researchers, ensuring patients are offered the latest drug treatments, surgical techniques and care supported with state-of-the-art equipment.

A bespoke approach to treatment includes personalised care packages and comprehensive wrap-around support services (including multilingual teams supported by translation services, culturally appropriate menu choices and prayer facilities).

Caroline Owusu-Bennoah, Deputy Chief Executive of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, said: “London is home to world-leading specialist hospitals and this consortium of hospitals couldn’t be a better place for private patients in the UK and internationally seeking exceptional and expert care.

“At the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, we understand the impact of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions and pride ourselves on making sure our patients receive the tailored treatment, care and support they need – every step of the way.”

David Shrimpton, Managing Director of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Specialist Care, said: “As world-leaders in heart and lung care, Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals are excited to be a part of this collaboration with other great London specialist hospitals; working together to promote our private care services internationally, and generating income to be reinvested back into the NHS.”

Mark Hawken, Managing Director of The Royal Marsden Private Care, said: “This partnership is an exciting development for all of the participating hospitals and an opportunity for all of us to bring even more patients the best quality of care available.

“At The Royal Marsden, we offer outstanding research-led clinical care using first class facilities, world-leading expertise and state-of-the-art technology.

“Our private patients choose their own consultant who will personally oversee every aspect of their treatment plan, to ensure they receive the continuity and reassurance of one-to-one care.”

Andrew Robertson, Director for Private Care at Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said: “This collaboration demonstrates the value of NHS private patient units working together to deliver the highest quality healthcare to patients from the UK and internationally, with all the financial surplus generated reinvested into NHS services for the benefit of all patients.

“Moorfields is a world-leader in ophthalmology and partnering with another four NHS centres of excellence, who are also world-leaders in their respective specialties, delivers an unbeatable service for international patients looking to travel to London for their healthcare.”

Chris Rockenbach, Managing Director, International and Commercial, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, said: “This collaboration will ensure patients from around the world can access the best and most trusted hospitals in London, meaning they can receive the most advanced clinical care in line with the highest international standards.

“As a world-class centre of excellence in paediatric care, and the leading children’s hospital in Europe, Great Ormond Street Hospital provides ground-breaking treatments for children with rare and complex or multiple conditions across more than 60 clinical specialties.  Like our partners in this collaboration, our focus on research, education and innovation means we are able to deliver the best possible clinical outcomes.”
