Who we are

We are one of the largest private hospital groups in the UK. We treat more than one million patients a year at our network of 39 hospitals and many clinics across the UK. Spire International, a division of Spire Healthcare, is charged with co-ordinating and delivering the healthcare needs of patients who are travelling from abroad for medical treatment. We work closely with medical referrers or sponsors including country embassies, country health offices and military offices, sports teams, private corporate companies, companies specialising in repatriation to the UK and consultancy companies handling international medical care. Edinburgh has over 500 years of history in medicine and has often been at the forefront of new medical breakthroughs. At Spire Edinburgh Hospitals a number of our consultants have an international reputation in their field of medicine.
