We’re passionate about your recovery
Circle Health runs private hospitals, rehabilitation and health services across the UK. We were founded in 2004 by a group of doctors and managers who believed in a fresh approach to healthcare.
We wanted to create a culture of partnership where each staff member is empowered and feels able to make a real difference, where the best management ideas from other sectors to health were applied, and where patients come first above all else.
Circle was a finalist for the LaingBuisson Innovation in Care Award in 2018.
Rehabilitation in the UK
Ask people about “rehab” in the UK and recovering from addiction is often mentioned. Yet in Europe and USA, rehabilitation is thought of in an entirely different way. Dedicated, intensive rehabilitation packages following diagnosis of neurological conditions such as stroke and Parkinson’s disease are commonplace, as is effective rehabilitation following surgery and injuries to bones & joints.
Many countries have large scale rehabilitation hospitals helping thousands of patients recover quicker. This has been at the heart of European healthcare for over 30 years, yet the UK has been missing this link, instead focusing on community care.
The gap in UK rehabilitation
Imagine an 80-year-old grandfather with a fractured hip.
The chances of him returning home to his loved ones after spending 19 days in an acute hospital, where he is more likely to become immobilised, are greatly diminished, and he’s more likely to need to enter a nursing home.
Imagine the same grandfather transferred after four days from the acute hospital to a rehabilitation centre. There, he receives more than three hours every day of intensive therapy with the latest technology, and is cared for by a medical, nursing and therapist team who can also treat other conditions he may have. This grandfather will be far more likely to return to home rather than to a nursing home.
We fundamentally believe everyone deserves to be able to live independently in their own home, wherever possible. Our aim is to help our patients achieve this quicker with our large scale rehabilitation hospitals.
Hear from Ede, a stroke patient who recovered after care at Circle Rehabilitation.
The launch of Circle Rehabilitation
With these large scale rehabilitation hospitals proving to be so successful in Europe, Circle launched a joint venture with VAMED, one of Europe’s leading rehabilitation providers. VAMED’s expertise and experience helped Circle to adapt proven, evidence-based models of rehabilitative care to the UK healthcare sector.
In 2017, Circle Rehabilitation was launched at our hospital in Reading. In 2019, the service is expanding to Birmingham with a 120 bed hospital being launched – the first of its kind in the UK.
Circle’s values are central to everything we do. We aim to exceed the expectations of our patients every time, which means we’re constantly striving to improve our services. We want to help the UK meet its rehabilitation needs, while striving to become the best healthcare provider.
What we do: helping you achieve your goals
Circle Rehabilitation offers a wide range of healthcare services to the general public. We help people across two key areas: neurological and musculoskeletal (bones & joints) rehabilitation.
Our team builds on the expertise of hundreds of consultants already working in Circle hospitals. Our dedicated rehabilitation team includes neurological rehabilitation doctors, clinical psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation nurses, speech therapists and dietitians, who all work closely together in what we call a multi-disciplinary team.
Core conditions we treat include:
Bones & joints:
- Following surgery e.g. hip or knee replacement
- Pain management e.g. fibromyalgia
- Sports injuries
- Low back pain and sciatica
If you or a loved one choose to have your rehabilitation at Circle, we’ll always start with your end goals in mind. We’re passionate about helping you to get back to doing the things you love, helping you to continually meet and exceed your long term goals.
