Our purpose

Our mission statement describes our purpose aligned with our culture

As the UK's first fully-operational private hospital to be wholly owned by an NHS Trust, we are unique as a private healthcare provider.

We re-invest back into The Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust for the benefit of all patients.

Our mission is a simple and powerful statement that aligns with our purpose, culture and strategy and is at the heart of everything we do.

Our values are who we are. They're values we believe in and not just something we talk about. They're the power behind how we think and behave and are the inspiration that drives us.

Our mission and values reflect who we are, the local communities we support and how we care for our patients.


We’re dedicated to enhancing the quality of people’s lives through the provision of exceptional care. Everything we do helps to make healthcare better for everyone.

We put patients and their safety above all else.

We believe in nurturing our teams to be the best they can be.

We aim to bring real value to our community.

As a leading private hospital 100% owned by an NHS Trust, we’re proud to be reinvesting back into the NHS.


Care and compassion

We treat every patient how we would wish to be treated, and we work with people who believe in this too. Rapid access to diagnostics and specialist appointments are just some of the ways we’re reassuring patients that they’re in safe hands.

Respect and trust

We are an inclusive organisation that values the expertise of diverse teams. We understand that bringing the right people together can improve patient care, and that successful collaboration happens within teams that respect and trust one another.

Clinical excellence

We value clinical excellence and safe working practices. We are committed to providing outstanding care.

Better together

By creating an environment in which people can take ownership and instigate change, we’re ensuring our service can continue to evolve and adapt to patient needs.
