Hospital Director Karen PattisonNuffield Health recently picked up the award for Private Hospital Group of the Year at the Health Investor Awards 2017. The award is designed to recognise outstanding contribution to healthcare over the past 12 months, through innovation and excellence in healthcare products and services.

With a network of 31 hospitals across the UK, including Nuffield Health Wolverhampton, Nuffield Health has concentrated on enhancing patient satisfaction and quality care across the organisation. In 2016, one of the Nuffield Health hospitals became the first independent hospital to receive the highest possible rating of excellence with an outstanding rating from the regulator the Care Quality Commission. Of the 26 hospitals reviewed by regulators to date, 24 of them have received a rating of good or outstanding.

In accepting the award, Chris Blackwell-Frost, Chief Customer Officer said: “Nuffield Health is honoured to receive the Private Hospital Group of the Year award. It is a delight to accept this on behalf of the hardworking and dedicated teams across our hospitals network, who ensure everyday our patients’ interests are their priority.”

Locally Karen Pattison, Hospital Director for Nuffield Health Wolverhampton, said: “This is a great result for us nationally and reflects the feedback we are experiencing locally. Recently we were awarded a rating of good by the Care Quality Commission. Of all our patients, whether insured, self pay or NHS, 96% said they were satisfied overall. We are not complacent and recognise improvements can be made. We want to know, so we can act on all feedback to deliver even higher patient satisfaction.”

Nuffield Health was selected from a finalist group of six private hospital groups within the UK. The finalists included a mixture of not-for-profit, privately owned and publicly listed organisations.
