Sulis Hospital is an award-winning hospital, led by some of the UK’s most experienced consultants.

The hospital was designed by world-renowned architects Foster & Partners, in collaboration with the founding doctors, who combined their NHS and private practice experiences to create a healing environment. Both NHS and private patients receive outstanding care and expertise at Sulis Hospital.

Sulis Hospital is one of the first private hospitals in the UK where 100% of the shares are owned by an NHS Trust. The 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. The acquisition by the Royal United Hospital has grown the hospital’s services, increasing its capacity for patients.

This unique partnership between Sulis Hospital Bath and the Royal United Hospital NHS Foundation Trust ensures that we can continue to offer patients the highest standard of care.

Working with us means taking pride in your team and delivering the highest quality of care. We will support you and your ongoing learning in a hospital that benefits from advanced equipment and practices and has one of the best clinician-to-patient ratios around.

Our teams are nurtured to be the best they can be so that we can enhance the quality of people's lives through exceptional care. We are delighted to be rated outstanding by the Care Quality Commission for 'Caring' because of the caring nature of our people.
