    WHO Safe Surgery

    The World Health Organisation (WHO) safe surgery check list is completed before and after surgery by the surgical teams to ensure avoidable errors endangering lives are reduced. The checklist has improved anaesthetic safety, ensures correct site surgery, avoids surgical site infections and improves communication and teamwork amongst the surgical team.

    Multidisciplinary cancer team

    The hospital approaches cancer care with a multidisciplinary team (MDT). Every cancer patient is discussed by an MDT team of relevant specialists, to ensure that all available and appropriate treatment options are considered for each patient.

    This facility was quality assessed in 2012

Bupa Preferred Provider

A Bupa Preferred Provider is any provider of healthcare services which has satisfied the requirements of the Bupa Global Hospital Quality Programme as well as signed our standard provider agreement.  The provider will accept direct settlement of bills for eligible treatment from Bupa Global for in-patient and in many cases also for out-patient services.  Customers will only need to pay any deductible or co-insurance included on their policy, or for any incidentals not covered under their policy.

Our standard provider agreement requires hospitals to comply with the World Health Organisation safe surgery checklist and guidelines on hand hygiene, as well as to report core quality indicators such as clinical complaints and incidents. 

All of the providers listed in our Facilities Finder have agreed to work with Bupa Global, and will accept direct settlement of in-patient bills, and in many cases also for out-patient services.   

The Bupa Global Hospital Quality Programme-Quality Assessed

The Bupa Global Hospital Quality Programme operates a review of clinical services provided by a hospital as well as areas such as patient safety, clinical governance and risk systems, infection control, medication management, leadership and staff to confirm that they meet international standards.
