"My experience working with Ramsay Health Care has been outstanding. The hospitals teams provide me with assurance of high standards, both in competence and professionalism. Ramsay staff enjoy what they do, follow the ‘Ramsay Way’ to deliver healthcare as it should be. Patient pathways are well managed, from the point of referral through to discharge, making my patients’ experience exceptional. Personally, tailoring my practice around my NHS commitments is a real benefit, in the knowledge there is opportunity to expand and develop."
