United Kingdom

Netcare, through BMI Healthcare, is the largest private provider of acute hospital care in the United Kingdom (UK), serving National Health Service (NHS), private medical insurance (PMI) and self-pay patients. Since establishing its presence in the UK in 2002, Netcare has delivered competently and consistently against the stringent service and quality standards embedded in the NHS contracts. Of the private hospital groups in the UK, BMI Healthcare sees the highest volumes of NHS patients.


In Lesotho the Tsepong consortium, in which Netcare is the largest shareholder, is engaged in a public private partnership (PPP) with the national government. Netcare manages the facilities and provide clinical services in a 425-bed hospital, as well as three filter clinics and a gateway clinic providing primary healthcare. The hospital incorporates a 35-bed private facility. This innovative model has broadened our role in public sector healthcare delivery in an African context.
