HCA: World-Class Healthcare

Last month, one of our healthcare clients, HCA Healthcare, was proudly presented with The Health Investor’s Private Hospital Group of the Year award. HCA Healthcare is a world-renowned private healthcare provider whom Cavendish has worked with for many years, consistently providing a high-calibre of clinical and non-clinical staff for their specialist facilities across the UK. As the largest private hospital group in the world, HCA boasts 6 hospitals and various other partnership facilities in the UK, primarily in London. 

Some of their best-known facilities include The Portland, a world-renowned women and children’s hospital, and The Wellington - the UK's largest independent hospital. There are wide-spread specialisms and capabilities across the facilities, but one thing which remains consistent is the high level of care and the world-class staff for which HCA are renowned.  

HCA facilities include:

The Portland Hospital

As mentioned, the Portland is a dedicated women and children’s facility specialising in paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology. In fact, is the only private maternity hospital in the UK. Over 1,600 babies are delivered there each year and it has 93 beds across the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Neonatal ICU and Adult High Dependency Unit (HDU). Women travel from across the world to receive specialist treatment from conception right through to delivery and after-care. The hospital operates with over 600 members of staff, all extremely well-regarded and competent in their fields. 

The Wellington Hospital 

The Wellington is the largest private facility in the world, with expertise ranging across cardiac, orthopaedics, neurosurgery, cancer care, spinal surgery, acute neurological rehabilitation and gynaecology. The hospital has 4 main sites across London. The most recent of these is the Platinum Medical Centre, opened in May 2011. It houses a diagnostic and imaging centre with PET CT and two MRI scanners together X-Ray, ultrasound and cardiology diagnostics.

The Christie Clinic and LOC (Leaders in Oncology Care)

These two facilities combined position HCA at the forefront of cancer care in both Manchester and London. In partnership with the Christie NHS Foundation Trust, the Christie Clinic is one of the leading cancer centres in Europe, with the capacity to diagnose and treat all types of cancer. This partnership allows HCA to provide world-class cancer care in Manchester.  

The LOC clinics span across 6 different sites in London and Manchester, including one within the Christie Clinic. The aim is to deliver innovative cancer treatments, exceptional patient care, and a unique, individual patient experience universally across all its locations. 

The Harley Street Clinic

This facility, situated on the famous Harley Street, specialises in 4 key disciplines: cardiac, cancer, neuroscience and paediatrics. By attracting top consultants from around the world and investing in the latest medical technology, the hospital is renowned for providing excellence in patient care. Within The Children’s Hospital, the Harley Street Clinic has the largest private paediatric ICU in the country. 

Opportunities with HCA

Moving from the NHS to the private sector can be a daunting decision, and there are many reasons why you may hesitate to make the move. The NHS is an incredible institution providing outstanding care to the public and there are pre-conceptions that due to the smaller size, the private sector may not offer the same challenges. But the benefits on offer in the private sector will be hard to beat. Working for HCA, some of the benefits you can expect to receive include private healthcare, employee discounts, flexible annual leave, life assurance, childcare vouchers and even accommodation. Above all, the company offers exceptional training schemes, the opportunity to be trained in various disciplines as well as internal movement and progression, allowing you to excel in your chosen field.  

As a recruitment partner for HCA, we consistently feature opportunities for clinical and non-clinical staff across all departments and levels on our website.  If you’re considering a move to your dream career in the private sector, get in touch with our Healthcare team today who will be happy to assist you with your search.
