By gaining the recognition of being a ‘Patients' Choice’ hospital or clinic, it is clear that these establishments ‘go the extra mile’ for patients, offering superb customer care.
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 12 March 2014
The eight hospitals and clinics have been given the highest satisfaction ratings by patients out of the 20,000 hospitals and clinics listed on Private Healthcare UK (http://www.privatehealthcare.co.uk). To appear on the list, establishments have to have achieved an overall patient rating of 4.5 or higher out of 5 during 2013, in the patient reviews section of the site.
The top private hospitals and clinics in the UK (in alphabetical order) are:
- Fitzwilliam Hospital, Peterborough
- Harley Street Dentist, London
- Oaks Hospital, Colchester
- Rivers Hospital, Hertfordhire
- Springfield Hospital, Chelmsford
- Veincentre, London
- Veincentre, Manchester
- Veincentre, Newcastle Under Lyme
The Patients' Choice Award recognises those hospitals and clinics that deliver excellent customer care and a great patient experience.
Keith Pollard, Managing Director of Intuition Communication, publishers of Private Healthcare UK, says the Patients' Choice recognition is of huge importance to the clinics:
“With more than 20,000 private hospitals and clinics in the UK, it can be very difficult for clinics to stand out and differentiate themselves from their competitors, especially as they often offer very similar treatments and procedures. By gaining the recognition of being a ‘Patients' Choice’ hospital or clinic, it is clear that these establishments ‘go the extra mile’ for patients, offering superb customer care.
“When a new patient is considering whether to use a certain clinic or hospital, this type of recognition can be a huge factor in deciding where to go, as it’s important to know that you’re going to be treated somewhere with an excellent reputation for the patient experience and satisfaction.”
