We employ the latest techniques to assist with early diagnosis of heart disease and the detection of cancer, including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computerised Axial Tomography (CT) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanners.

Supporting NHS services

The money generated by our private patient service is invested into our NHS services, so patients and consultants can be confident that they are supporting the Trust’s NHS services for the wider population.


Our facilities

Our private en-suite rooms include a television, including Amazon fire sticks for personal account use for apps such as Netflix, Amazon Video, BBC iPlayer etc. We provide towels, towelling bathrobe and slippers, along with complimentary shower gel, shampoo and conditioner.

We have dedicated Hospitality Assistants to ensure you are well looked after during your stay. This includes offering a dedicated private food menu plus tea, coffee and other refreshments and a daily newspaper on request – all of which are complimentary.

Emergency care facilities

The Wells Suite has direct access to any additional help a patient may need, including specialist care and monitoring.  Should things not go to plan (as they can in any medical procedure), patients can be transferred to our on-site intensive care unit, high-dependency unit or coronary care unit.

If you need urgent care you’ll receive it instantly, without needing to be transferred to another hospital.
