Private Healthcare Awards 2023

7 GHP Private Healthcare Awards 2023 Bupa doesn’t really need an introduction. After all, it’s known around the world for delivering exceptional healthcare services. With that in mind, there were few alternatives when it came to recognition as ‘Best Global Healthcare Support Team’. We spoke with the Group Clinical team at Bupa to find out more about their work and achievements. Over its 75 years, Bupa has grown beyond the UK to include businesses across Europe, APAC region, Middle East, South America, the USA and Ireland. Today, its presence is undisputable, and its expertise has helped thousands. As an integral part of Bupa, the Group Clinical Team is a “central function” which supports Bupa’s global workforce. The Group Clinical team brings together clinical, academic, commercial and communication expertise under the leadership of the Chief Medical Officer, Dr Paula Franklin. The team aims to promote Bupa as a healthcare leader, showcasing the expertise of their global clinic community and supporting quality care for healthier people and a healthier planet. “As a global healthcare company, we’ve been looking after people’s health for over 75 years. Our purpose is helping people live longer, healthier, happier lives and making a better world. We strive to live our purpose every day. It guides our thinking, our decisions and our impact on people and society. It’s becoming clearer that to look after people’s health, we also need to look after the health of our planet.
