Offering you the very best through the NHS
Dr Matthew Wordsworth founded Independent Health Group in December 2004, we treated our first patients in the spring of 2005.“I worked in the NHS for many years and knew that we could do much better, providing patients with the high quality care that we all want, for our friends, families and ourselves. I set up Independent Health Group to do just that; providing NHS care of the highest quality where patients always come first. I also wanted to create a new healthcare organisation where like-minded healthcare professionals could join the team to drive the innovation and efficiency necessary to create a caring and modern NHS healthcare organisation fit for the 21st century. I am proud that we have, and continue to deliver care by these guiding principles and that we continue to expand the range of services and locations we are able to offer to NHS patients”.
