BMI The London Independent Hospital is a comprehensive, acute private hospital located close to the City of London and Canary Wharf, and is within easy access of Essex and the home counties. With a full critical care unit (ITU level III), four theatres (one with laminar flow), a cardiac catheterisation unit, endoscopy suite and one of the most comprehensive private imaging centres in the South East, the hospital has an unrivalled reputation for providing both routine and complex care for patients from the wider Essex and Greater London areas, and internationally.
Home to one of the most esteemed teams of consultant cardiologists and cardio-thoracic surgeons in the country, the hospital has long been a core centre for cardiac care, attracting nationwide referrals based on both the expertise of our consultants and cardiac nursing teams together with our ability to cover every aspect of the patient pathway without onward referral.
Over 300 senior consultants practice at the hospital across all specialties, including our ‘London SportsCare’ group of leading orthopaedic surgeons, whose patients include international elite athletes and high profile professional sports players. A number of our consultants recently appeared in the ‘The Times Top 50 UK Doctors’ list, including Professor Nicola Maffulli (orthopaedic surgeon) and Professor Neil Barnes (colorectal surgeon and gastroenterologist).
Our diagnostics facilities further set us apart from any other private facility in Essex and Greater London, bringing minimally invasive testing within local reach, including the CT coronary angiogram via the UK’s first 128-slice CT scanner and cardiac MRI. We are also the only private hospital in the area to offer a full nuclear imaging department, providing comprehensive cardiac perfusion scanning.
