Our Healthcare Standards

We passionately believe patients and their GPs should have high quality information to make informed choices when it comes to something as important as their health.

In 2006 Spire were the first private hospital group to publish clinical performance and health improvement measures on the web, including information on MRSA blood infection and Clostridium Difficile.
