About Us

Excelling in specialist patient care since 1843

Our two hospitals – Royal Brompton and Harefield – have prestigious histories as independent institutions specialising in the treatment and diagnosis of heart and lung conditions.

More than 2,500 people work across both sites, and each member of the team is dedicated to providing specialist, cutting-edge care. Alongside day-to-day care, our specialists conduct invaluable research. From this, we publish findings and make evidence-based decisions to ensure we’re offering the best care to today’s patients and future generations.

Our relationship with the NHS

Royal Brompton and Harefield Specialist Care is the private arm of the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust.

Our aim is to make our world-leading treatments and services accessible to all.  By offering dedicated private services and facilities, our hospitals are able to treat patients from overseas, as well as those with private health insurance, or those who choose to self fund. Any profits made from our private business are reinvested directly back into the Trust, helping to improve both NHS and private patient services.

As a private arm of a specialist NHS hospital, we are able to attract some of the most talented consultants from around the world, and can provide some of the most sophisticated treatments using state-of-the art diagnostic technology and treatment facilities.
