Spire Healthcare Group plc Annual Report 2022

Our year in review

We have seen a rebound in demand for private healthcare and our teams have worked hard this year to position the business to meet this demand. The board was delighted to see yet another increase in our quality scores, with a record 98% of our hospitals now rated as ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by CQC, or its equivalent in Scotland and Wales.

Sir Ian Cheshire

Our colleagues have worked hard to create a strong platform for growth, with safety and quality at the heart of everything we do. More than ever before, personalised quality care is our daily responsibility, delivered by our talented, committed hospital teams, nurses and allied professionals, and of course, our consultant partners.
