• Private hospitals to be given ratings from April 2015

    The private hospital sector is coming under more and more scrutiny. This is entirely appropriate. The standard of care that private patients receive should be excellent, and just as tightly regulated as in the NHS.

    In the LION group practice, we follow up all patients after their procedures, no matter in which private hospital the intervention has taken place. This is to ensure that they have made a smooth recovery but also that the hospital has provided excellent care on the ward and in theatres.
