Information for your role

Finder is our online directory of Bupa recognised consultants, therapists, hospitals and clinics across the UK.

It allows customers, GPs and the general public to find a Bupa recognised healthcare professional or service and see where and when they practise, and how to reach them.

If you’re Bupa recognised, you already have your own personal Finder profile page. With more than 100,000 visits every week, your profile is a free way to market your practice or facility as most traffic to the site comes from search engines like Google.
