More than £654 million has been invested in Spire hospitals since 2007. This huge investment has created facilities accredited as specialist centres for a range of medical and surgical specialties. Included within this investment is a commitment to develop a UK wide range of specialist cancer services.

“Spire continues to invest heavily to provide our referring clinicians with the most up-to-date facilities and equipment, while all the time widening the range of specialities and conditions we treat”, says Neil McCullough, Business Development Director.

“Since 2007 we have increased our number of operating theatres from 103 to 122, with many more either under construction or planned. We are now looking forward to the next exciting phase of our growth story, which begins with two new state-of the-art hospitals and a network of specialist care centres across the UK.”
