About us

Welcome to Highgate Private Hospital

Highgate Private Hospital opened in 1980 and provides first-class independent healthcare for the local community. Located in leafy North London near Hampstead Heath, our hospital is easily accessible from Central London and the surrounding areas.

We can offer you a peaceful stay in a private en-suite room and fast access to a consultant. Our hospital takes pride in high standards of care and a friendly atmosphere.

Since 2003, Highgate Private Hospital has been part of the Aspen Healthcare Group. They manage eight hospitals and clinics in the UK. This ensures that there is continuous investment in our equipment, facilities, staff and training.

We welcome patients who have private medical insurance or choose to pay for their own treatment. Highgate Private Hospital also provides some specialist services to NHS patients.
