Our Hospital, founded in 1856, is one of the country’s largest independent charity hospitals and the UK’s premier Catholic hospital. Our commitment to our patients is in the quality of our care, the range of our services and the quality of our consultants and staff. They are, we believe, the very best in their profession. Together we offer a welcome to all to visit us.
Our charitable status comes from our St John’s Hospice which is in the Hospital and which we fund with appeals and surplus from our private healthcare services. This in-patient, day care and community facility provides care, without charge, to people living within our wide catchment area. In the past year we have looked after 4000 patients and in many cases their families too.
We take great pride in our heritage. The Catholic ethos which has been our inspiration since the Hospital was founded, assures patients of a commitment to care and compassion in the delivery of their healthcare. Our aim is the same now as it was over 161 years ago — to provide the highest quality healthcare for all those who seek it.
Sir Mark Allen,
– The Hospital Chairman
