4 GHP Private Healthcare Awards 2023 Healthcare is becoming ever-more client centric, moulding itself to the needs of the patient, whatever they may be. As a bestin-class medical concierge service, HCA Healthcare UK (HCA UK) is accelerating this trend, while paving the way for others to follow. On the back of its well-deserved win, we spoke with HCA Healthcare UK CEO John Reay to find out more about the business and its operations. Feb23275 Healthcare Concierge Service of the Year - Greater London To really understand HCA UK, you have to know what drives it and how it has changed over time. The HCA UK Medical Concierge Service was born from the efforts of Annabelle Neame, a former staff nurse who started her own concierge service. “This service, which is transforming the healthcare experience for many people, is the brainchild of Annabelle Neame. After several years running her own business, HCA UK asked Annabelle to evaluate their international pathways and identify the problems people had accessing healthcare.” “Following her research, Annabelle started HCA UK’s Medical Concierge Service. She had the backing of senior executives and handpicked one of the best teams in the business. Their pilot study, completed with an embassy and an international medical aid organisation, was hugely successful, and thus the service was born,” John Reay begins by explaining, addressing the pillars on which The HCA UK Medical Concierge Service was developed. Ultimately, there can be no mistaking the impetus behind the company and its concierge service – patient-centricity. From the outset, John Reay made HCA UK’s core mission and goal obvious – to make sure they always puts the patient first. “At HCA UK’s Medical Concierge Centre, we put the patient at the centre of everything we do. That’s been our core value since day one. It hasn’t changed, and nor will it, because we exist to make sure patients get the best medical care when they need it most. A patient’s safety, wellbeing and treatment is our top priority.” Indeed, despite the company’s name, HCA UK operates far outside the UK’s borders to facilitate medical needs for patients. “We work with patients all over the world. Whether you’re here in the UK and want a transfer to an HCA UK hospital, or you’re in an ICU in a hospital in Kenya and need to get to an ICU here in London, we will facilitate that journey for you. We work with insurers, corporations, embassies, and people who fund their treatment themselves – no matter how you come to us, from the first touchpoint, you are our first priority.” “It’s the best team I’ve worked with and the best job I’ve ever had.” - Daniel Brice “If every member of the team can say that I’ll feel like I’ve done my job.” – Annabelle Neame While many industries are pivoting to include more client-centric processes, the healthcare industry – and HCA UK perhaps chief among them – has become a paragon of the greater paradigm shift. The company and service has made a significant mark for offering clients the best possible healthcare and, more importantly, the best possible chances of survival when its clients need it most. One sobering example of this occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic, as John explains. “During the pandemic, there were red list countries you couldn’t fly to or from if you wanted to land in London. We had a call about a very unwell patient from a rhino farm in Kenya, which was a complex medical case that was difficult to transfer because of the Covid-19 travel restrictions. The air ambulance had refuelled at some point in a country from the red list, so Stanstead wouldn’t accept the patient even as the air ambulance circled Stanstead airport. The pilot called one of our clinical nurse specialists, who got special permission for that plane to land at Stanstead. It’s no understatement to say our nurse gave the patient on board their best chance for survival that day. When no one else could’ve landed that plane at Stanstead, we did.” “The HCA UK Medical Concierge Service is one point of contact, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It is the only concierge service to be registered with the CQC, and has, to date, won several awards for its medical care and patient service.” But, let’s now look at the future, and how HCA UK is looking to capitalise on its significant success moving forwards. “We have so much in development. We’re all very excited about the corporate memberships we’ll be offering to clients very soon, so their employees will be able to access care from anywhere in the world. To date, we’ve coordinated transfers from over 60 countries, which is a huge achievement. We’re also continually working to build new relationships with embassies we haven’t worked with before. We’re so excited for 2023. It’s going to be all about growth. We’re a start-up within a much larger organisation, so we’re entering our scale-up phase,” John concludes.

5 GHP Private Healthcare Awards 2023 ealthcare is becoming more personalised, more patientcentric, more individualised – moving away from cookie cutter solutions. After all, no patient will be the same, so their care shouldn’t be either. MyHealthcare Clinic has truly embodied that approach through its services, as Dr Akash explains from the outset. “We are proud to provide instant access to medical or dental appointments where a patient’s need for immediate care may otherwise be constrained with prolonged waiting periods or delays. Additionally, although we are a private healthcare provider, we offer affordable, transparent pricing to cater to the needs of individuals and families. Our staff are passionate, driven individuals who share our collective goal of providing exceptional healthcare to all our patients, this means the interaction that our patient has – whether from our front of house team, dedicated Patient Support Department or expert clinicians, will always reflect this goal.” Ultimately, healthcare is a crucial part of society, but it is also a service that few have optimal access to. There’s room for improvement across the board – and that’s what drives MyHealthcare Clinic, to achieve that improvement. But, let’s focus on what truly makes the clinic unique, and that’s its ability to offer a variety of services all under one roof, as Dr Akash moves on to discuss. “We remain resolute in offering exceptional healthcare to all our patients and providing access to patients when they need it most, which is why we are proud of our unique patient-centric model that allows patients to be seen by either a GP, dentist, or specialist all in one clinic. This eliminates the need for patients to move in between clinics when they need different treatments from different clinicians, but rather to access all services under one roof. This unique model distinguishes us as a leading healthcare provider that not only gives patients instant access to highly specialised and professional care (with the added advantage of access to same-day appointments), but also with the convenience of multiple locations across London that are close to major transport modes.” “We strive to offer unparalleled level of care and always ensure that our patients are treated with respect, kindness, and compassion.” While public services should be applauded for their considerable work, it’s becoming clear that additional support is needed to best serve those that require the best medical care, whenever they are in need of it. After all, it’s often not possible to get same-day appointments due to demand, but that is something MyHealthcare Clinic offers 6 days a week, as Dr Akash moves on to discuss in more detail. “MyHealthcare Clinic is proud to provide access to patients 6 days a week with early access, late appointments or sameday appointments, thereby eliminating lengthy waiting periods. “We understand that patients often need immediate access to professional, trusted and reliable care when they need it most. In addition, we offer virtual or telephonic consultations for patients who are on the go, travelling, or not able to attend face-to-face appointments, which means patients receive continuity of care, no matter where they are. By providing this level of access and flexibility, MyHealthcare Clinic seeks to provide the highest quality health care experience to our patients.” Healthcare needs constant innovation and development, and in this respect, MyHealthcare Clinic is matching its pace step for step. In the years since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, technology and digitisation has been a crucial accelerator of patient-centric care – and this is where MyHealthcare Clinic’s future also lies, as Dr Akash concludes. “MyHealthcare is constantly researching how technology and innovation can help provide patients with better care – whether through virtual consultations to help accommodate patients who can’t always travel to a clinic, or by scaling technology for more convenient booking options through app development, or by adding key clinical treatments to help patients with access to other medical, dental or specialist services.” “By creating these innovative solutions, MyHealthcare bridges the gap between traditional health care and modern technological advances, allowing patients to access affordable, quality care from the comfort of their own homes.” Company: MyHealthcare Clinic Name: Dr Akash Patel, Medical Director Email: [email protected] Web Address: Address: 5-11 Vanston Place, Fulham SW6 1AY Telephone: 0207 099 5555 H Feb23142 Best Private Dental & Medical Care Clinic - London MyHealthcare Clinic is a doctor-led healthcare provider that provides personalised medical, dental and specialist care under one roof. We spoke with Medical Director, Dr Akash Patel, to find out why the clinic so deserves the title of ‘Best Private Dental & Medical Care Clinic’ in London.

8 GHP Private Healthcare Awards 2023 Advancements in healthcare are happening every day – crucial developments that inch the industry ever forward. In this space, HunterG is a device that detects spiders and scorpions – among other insects – to ensure the safety of the user. We spoke with Tigran Grigoryan, Founder and CEO, to find out more on the back of the company’s success in the programme. Arachnophobia is one of the most common fears around the world, afflicting literally millions – if not billions – of people. It can also be one of the most debilitating, depending on where you live. HunterG then offers incredible peace of mind for those who do suffer with a fear of spiders or scorpions, as Tigran explains in more detail. “We are a team of enthusiasts who began to turn ideas that came from everyday life into reality. Our core values first of all are health and safety, especially of children. In 2012, a scorpion was found next to my son’s cradle on the 4th floor, away from sight. So, the team decided to find a solution to the problems of arachnophobia and the danger of spiders and scorpions to children – HunterG was born from that effort. “HunterG is a device, which detects spiders and scorpions, localizes with laser and calls for help with alarm. HunterG is absolutely safe, as it doesn’t transmit or capture any signals (WiFi, ultrasound, electromagnetic). “There are millions of people with the phobia against spider and scorpion, they can live without anxiety when HunterG is around.” Ultimately, Tigran and the team at HunterG understand that the future of healthcare relies on the innovative implementation of technology to reinforce and support healthcare developments.

Best Private Psychological Therapy Practice - Southeast England Resilient Wellbeing Clinic was established to provide easy access to gold-standard psychological services.” The COVID-19 pandemic acted as a catalyst for people to start taking their mental health needs seriously. Of course, this has put a strain on public services due to increased demand – and private options are becoming more popular as a result. In this market, Resilient Wellbeing Clinic has firmly established itself as a standout, known for delivering exceptional care to its clients, as Dr Scevoli explains in more detail. “We work with London and all over the UK, offering online therapy. In fact, with the introduction of the hybrid working model and the changes in habits and lifestyles brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, we noticed a significantly higher request for online therapy compared to pre-pandemic trends, so we adapted our service to the new demands and invested in creating a hassle-free, easy to use online therapy option, which became popular very quickly, where our clients can receive their therapy session in the comfort of their home.

11 GHP Private Healthcare Awards 2023 Early Life Ultrasound Centre has endeavoured to deliver exceptional and compassionate services for soon to be parents. Following its deserved recognition in the programme, we spoke with Clinic Manager Chrissie Cooper to find out how it has cultivated a near peerless reputation in the sphere. Ultrasound clinics tend to fly under the radar in the greater healthcare and medical space – understandable in some respects due to the nature of the work. But, there are some extraordinary experts and organisation in the sphere, driving the ultrasound sphere ever forwards. Early Life Ultrasound Centre certainly fits this mould, with services that have become distinguished through the team’s collective efforts. Chrissie begins by discussing how the centre goes above and beyond in terms of training newcomers to the company. “It takes a bit more to be a Sonographer at Early Life Ultrasound Centre. Our Sonographer’s undergo extra counselling training on top of their existing medical ultrasound qualifications. Empathy, Kindness and Compassion are key qualities that you can expect from our staff. It also helps when staff have already walked the parenting journey with its trials and tribulations and have an understanding of the emotions at this precious time. “Our aim is to enable parents to have access to ultrasound services throughout their pregnancy without having to be referred. Our services are designed to fit around your all-important routine scans. We offer Early Pregnancy Reassurance Scans from seven weeks, Gender Scans from 15 weeks four days, and 3D & 4D scans that include well-being and growth checks, should you need some extra reassurance in the third trimester.” Working hand in hand with the expertise and compassion of the team is the clinic itself, which has been designed from the outset to encourage peace of mind, as Chrissie continues. “We have created a quiet and calming environment that is achieved by widening the times between our appointments instead of cramming as many appointments into a clinic session. This offers you the chance to see your baby with your family, or perhaps just on your own giving you time to enjoy the experience. It also means that you have the opportunity to ask questions look through your images together in the privacy of the scan room.” “As soon as you step through the door of the Early Life Ultrasound Centre you can expect to be greeted with a welcoming, calming spa-like atmosphere.” With this in mind, the future of the centre remains one of growth and in developing upon the success the team have achieved. Private Ultrasound Practice of the Year - South West England Jan23559 Key to this is the newly refurbished centre that looks to define 2023 and beyond, as Chrissie concludes in her closing comments. “The new location is absolutely beautiful. We have taken a lot of care that our clinic is an extra special place to visit as we feel that the surroundings add to the whole experience. Our premises is newly refurbished and tastefully decorated in keeping with the Regency building that is our new home. We have created a calming atmosphere that offers privacy and feels more like a hotel than what is traditionally thought of as a clinic but, at the same time, is fit for work of a clinical nature.” Company Name: Early Life Ultrasound Centre Contact Name: Chrissie Cooper, Clinic Manager Address: 16 Ormond Terrace, Regents Street, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL50 1HR Web Address: Contact Email: [email protected] Telephone Number: 01242300810

12 GHP Private Healthcare Awards 2023 The London Skin and Hair Clinic is comprised of many moving parts, working seamlessly together to deliver best in class healthcare services for all those who enter its doors. Recognised once again in the Private Healthcare Awards, we took a closer look at the clinic to see how it continues to drive innovation in the industry. There are few clinics, at least in the UK if not beyond its borders, who have made more of an impact in regard to skin and hair treatment than The London Skin and Hair Clinic. Based out of London, it has become a centre of excellence and a pacesetter in the industry. Headed by Dr Martin Wade, Dr Nicola Clayton, and Dr Manjit Kaur, the centre’s hair loss clinic remains a leader in the space, with few better alternatives for those looking for comprehensive and expert-driven treatments. “These Dermatologists are all members of the British Association of Dermatology British Hair and Nail Society. The clinic utilises clinical photography with the Canfield system to track progress against treatment and a full range of treatment programs including oral and topical treatment, steroid injections and DCP treatment.” Indeed, the team has a strong history of successful treatments for numerous hair and scalp conditions such as, Alopecia Areata, excessive dandruff, Lichen Planopilaris, Tinea Capitis, and Folliculitis, among many others. Ultimately, it would be no exaggeration to state that, whatever a patient’s condition, the team at The London Skin and Hair Clinic are able to help. Crucially, the team are adept at treating the underlying cause of the condition, rather than the symptoms – which only results in temporary relief with a poor long-term prognosis. While many clinics claim to follow similar procedures, The London Skin and Hair Clinic’s team has curated a reputation based solely around achieving long-term results, which has – in turn – led to a peerless reputation and numerous industry-leading accolades. “Our values are defined by professionalism, ethical conduct, collaboration, openness, and empathy.” So, let’s talk for a moment about those treatments. Hair loss is an area of the healthcare landscape which is seeing significant developments over the last decade, and The London Skin and Hair Clinic makes sure that it follows best practices to exceed all expectations. These treatments include platelet rich plasma (PRP) for hair loss, steroid injections to promote growth, and, of particular note, JAK Inhibitor Tofacitinib, which is a new treatment for Alopecia Areata. Ultimately, regardless of a patient’s condition, The London Skin and Hair Clinic is able to deliver world-leading treatments with world-leading expert supervision.
