Two London hospitals have been ranked among the best in the world for specialist treatment, according to the Newsweek magazine and Statista annual survey.
Each year Newsweek magazine partners with Statista - a global research firm – to gather data and provide league tables on various medical fields.
When comparing hospitals providing specialist care in 28 countries, St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London and The Royal London Hospital came up trumps in league tables previously dominated by private hospitals in the US, Europe, and Asia.
St Bartholomew’s was rated:
- One of the top 100 hospitals in the treatments of cancer, cardiology, and heart surgery
- 38th worldwide for endocrinology
The Royal London was rated:
- One of the top 200 hospitals for cancer treatments (particularly for blood cancer and general paediatrics)
- One of the top 300 hospitals in the new ‘World's Best Smart Hospitals’ category
As quoted on bartshealth.nhs.co.uk, Charles Knight, Chief Executive of St Bartholomew’s, said: “I’m so delighted that our specialised services at St Bartholomew’s have been recognised in this significant global survey. I’m particularly proud of the high ranking of our specialised endocrinology service whose reputation is deservedly world-class.”
Dr Neil Ashman, Chief Executive of The Royal London, added: “I’m really pleased to see our surgical and critical care teams recognised for the complex surgical care we offer for those diagnosed with cancer at the Royal London, and it’s great that our focus on digital innovation to improve patient outcomes is acknowledged too.”
Over 40,000 clinicians – who can’t recommend their own hospitals - take part in this global speciality survey. The results are generated through this, available accreditation data, and patient-reported outcomes. A similar exercise was carried out for the smart hospital assessment that assessed the hospitals’ use of artificial intelligence, electronic functionality, digital imaging, robotics, and telemedicine.
