Care UK: Mark Gilmour

Care UK, the independent provider of healthcare services to the NHS, has appointed Mark Gilmour (pictured) as hospital director for two of its nine NHS treatment centres, providing secondary care treatment to NHS and self-pay patients across the country, namely the North East London and Will Adams NHS Treatment Centres.

Gilmour has worked in healthcare management for the past 15 years, holding management posts in hospitals in London, Essex and Hampshire, as well as being operations director for Spire Healthcare where he was responsible for business improvements across 39 hospitals.

He previously served in strike command and air operations with the RAF and as customer service manager for Eurostar UK’s passenger terminals.

Gilmour said: “I am looking forward to working with the teams and finding ways to help them develop the services still further. Our aim will be to keep waiting times low and patient satisfaction high, while supporting the diverse communities in Northeast London, Kent and beyond.”

Both centres launched Care UK’s self-pay service, which supports those who are ineligible for NHS treatment, or who wish to fast track their treatment, but don’t have private medical insurance.

Care UK claims its self-pay service costs 30% less than surgery offered by private hospitals.
