Nuffield Health picked up the award for Private Hospital Group of the Year, for a second year, at the Laing Buisson Awards 2018 last month. The award celebrates high quality care and continuous improvement, as well as innovation and excellence in going above and beyond.

With a network of 31 hospitals across the UK, including Nuffield Health Cardiff & Vale Hospitals, the group Health has concentrated on enhancing patient satisfaction and quality care across the organisation. To date 94% of their hospitals reviewed by regulators have achieved a rating of good or outstanding.

Along with many other excellent hospital services, Nuffield Health Cardiff and Vale Hospitals enjoys the enviable reputation for the highest quality orthopaedic surgery in South Wales. The Joint Replacement Centre Wales provides easy access to excellent hospital and wellbeing facilities with highly qualified and experienced consultants, nurses and physiotherapists. With clear and simple pricing, all insurance packages are accepted and self funding options to spread the cost are available. The Nuffield Health Promise means that, not only is there a clear and transparent price but also the very best in clinical acre and no limits on aftercare either.

In accepting the Hospital Group of the Year award, Chief Operations Officer, Martin Friend, said “Nuffield Health is delighted to receive the Private Hospital Group of the Year for the second time. It is an honour to be recognised for two years in a row and is testament to our hardworking and dedicated teams across our hospitals, who day to day ensure our patients’ needs are their priority.”

Locally Simon Rogers, Hospitals Director for Nuffield Health Cardiff and Vale Hospitals, said, “This is a great result for Nuffield Health. We are not complacent and recognise improvements can be made. We want to act on all feedback to deliver even higher patient satisfaction.”
