About us

Our purpose is to help people live longer, healthier and happier lives. It defines everything we do and is the reason we exist. We do this by providing a broad range of healthcare services, support and advice.

We run care homes, retirement and care villages, health and dental centres and the Bupa Cromwell hospital in London. We offer personal and company health insurance. We help prevent health problems arising with health assessments, and support chronic disease management with services like health coaching.

We’re committed to quality and value. That’s why we offer a broad range of services that can be accessed with or without our health insurance.

Care homes

We have around 280 care homes in the UK and employ over 4,500 nurses and almost 13,000 carers. We’re able to offer a wide range of personalised care services, long and short-term, nursing and residential.


Health centre

We have Bupa health centres throughout the UK, offering health assessments, GP services, travel vaccinations, physiotherapy, musculoskeletal services, dermatology, and workplace health services. Many of our centres offer early morning, lunchtime and evening appointments so people can fit them around their busy schedules.

Health insurance

We offer personal, family and company health insurance, providing people in the UK with the peace of mind: they know that if they need us, we’re here for them. Our health insurance offers access to private diagnosis and treatment if you fall ill or are injured. It’s designed to complement the NHS rather than replace it, and it’s used for planned, not emergency treatment.

Self-pay treatments

We offer a number of options for patients who want to pay for care themselves. You can access private GP appointments and a range of medical treatments to help assist you with any health concerns you may have.
