Care Quality Commission
Registered with the Care Quality Commission
The Private Clinic is an independent healthcare provider and is therefore registered with the appropriate regulatory body. We work hard to demonstrate our compliance with exacting standards and set outcomes.
The Private Clinic is an advocate for the clinical governance criteria set out by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) under the responsibility of the Nominated Individual (NI), and this is reflected not only in the service that we provide to our patients but also in our exemplary regulatory record.
Since we first opened our doors in 1983, our clinics in the UK have passed numerous unannounced and announced CQC inspections. We are proud that we have received on a number of occasions commendations for the quality of our high standards.
In line with the regulatory compliance, The Private Clinic ensures that all of its surgeons and doctors are registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and are Specialists in their field, with certification which reflects this and hold a valid licence to practice with the GMC. The Private Clinic always ensures that any surgeon or doctor has extensive experience in their field of speciality, be it Cosmetic Surgery, Liposuction, Varicose vein removal, Hair Transplant. Our Medical Director oversees the admitting rights of surgeons, dermatologist and doctors and chairs The Private Clinic’s Independent Medical Advisory Committee.
As a nurse-led organisation, The Private Clinic employs nurses, who are registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and are fully trained on a continuous basis in cosmetic pre and post-operative care and non-surgical treatments. It is through this continuous training that we strive to meet both the expectation of our patients and those of the regulatory bodies.
