HCA is one of the world’s leading providers of independent healthcare, and the largest provider of privately funded healthcare in the UK. Its founding philosophy of putting patients first has guided it every day since 1968. It provides compassionate care to patients no matter what they need – from clinical research, primary care (including a private GP service), outpatient and day-case treatment, through to complex and urgent care.
In the UK, HCA is the only private hospital group to have the highest level of critical care beds in all of its hospital facilities and positively takes on new challenges, in innovation and advancing clinical care. Importantly, HCA’s scale enables it to invest in networks of facilities with a specialist focus. Both here in the UK and in the US, networks staffed by experts in their fields, deliver high quality care for patients.
Why have we joined ‘Working with’?
“Joining the ‘Working with’ programme is an important way to for us to demonstrate our appreciation for all the exceptional work of our nursing teams. It is key that our teams know how much they are valued at HCA UK and we want to assist them by signposting to the support available. This has been one of the most challenging years in healthcare and now more than ever this is needed.
“We are fortunate to be able to provide multiple supportive mechanisms for all of our HCA UK colleagues, but we are delighted that in partnering with Cavell Nurses’ Trust, we can expand this for nursing.
“We all have personal challenges, and I hope that knowing there is access through both HCA UK and from Cavell Nurses’ Trust to support and guidance will provide you with reassurance. I would encourage any of our nurses to reach out to Cavell Nurses’ Trust and access support whenever they may need it.”
