Circle Health Group has again been named as the UK’s leading private hospital group – this time at the annual LaingBussion awards. 

The accolade, presented during a glitzy evening celebrating private healthcare, came in recognition of the group’s excellence in the delivery of care, in addition to innovation and transformation in challenging circumstances.  

This is the second high-profile healthcare award it has won since acquiring BMI Healthcare two years ago.

The first came at the annual Health Investor Awards where it was awarded ‘Private Hospital Group of the Year’ in response to the extraordinary contribution clinical teams made at the height of the pandemic.  

Judges at the LaingBussion event noted that Circle Health Group stood out in its delivery of acute health services and focus on technological inno vation.

They also recognised the work of its teams during Covid-19 when its 50 hospitals gave urgent care to more than 700,000 NHS patients.  

The group, which has stated it is committed to being the leading private hospital group for technology and digital innovation, invested £100m in facilities last year. 

It said these were all factors that judges noted as having set it apart from other finalists. 

Mr Paul Manning, its chief medical officer, said: ‘The investment we have made into our facilities and services has made a tangible difference to the quality of services we deliver across a range of specialties. 

‘Winning awards like this not only shows that we are doing the right thing, but it also inspires us to keep pushing to deliver the best patient outcomes and to become the most attractive private hospital group for consultants to do their private practice with.’
