Sulis Hospital’s private patient care model benefits all by allowing any additional income, earned through private care, to be reinvested in high-quality services for all patients at the two hospitals; Sulis Hospital and the Royal United Hospital.

Sulis Hospital is the first private hospital in the UK where 100% of the shares are owned by an NHS Trust. The acquisition by the RUH has grown the hospital’s services, increasing capacity for both NHS and private patients. This is particularly important at a time of recovery for NHS waiting lists nationally.

Our specialities include:

Cosmetic surgery
ENT (ear, nose and throat)
