Lovely friendly staff on site and clean premises. However the administration was very poor. They could never seem to locate my records when I called, incorrect letters were sent to me (e.g. booking in with the wrong consultant), others not sent at all. I frequently had to call to chase or clarify info. Lattily they gave me no updates/info about a follow-up surgery I was booked in for. Nothing to let me know it had been cancelled which meant I had to chase the surgeon for info and rescheduling. For the above reasons I'm not sure I would choose BMI London Independent again
Very efficient and friendly.

Bupa London independent Admin team poor, rude and caused problems with the admission. Overall nursing staff great from ward to recovery room. Physio staff very attentive. Catering staff very pleasant.
I was at BMI at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis and felt very well looked after and safe there. The staff were really friendly and the hospital was clean and lovely
I would prefer not to comment

Good experience with treatment.
The outpatient area can get a bit busy. Also sometimes it is hard to speak to someone in the hospital but thankfully Dr.Ramaswamy's secretary is very helpful and responsive.

Professional and reliable - exactly what you look for in a hospital.

Very friendly staff.
Over all a very good experience. Helpful team.
Clean, efficient, friendly and a welcoming environment.
No problems with the BMI, very clean, efficient and the staff were very kind and helpful. Especially the nurses for the in-patients. Only issue was on two occasions I waited approximately 45mins to be seen but overall this was not a big deal.
The facilities were great, clean, and the staff was incredibly friendly. However I was made to wait over 2 hours after my checks before I was discharged without much explanation as to why that was the case. Which wasn't ideal. Other than that, it was a fab experience. One note, I am a coeliac and it appeared that I wasn't able to be offered a gluten-free option for food. Either that or the person who was asking me if I wanted to eat didn't understand what I needed. Not a huge problem as I was an outpatient, but potentially may be problematic for patients with dietary requirements staying at the hospital.
All staff are very caring
It was over all a very good experience. All staff are polite and considerate.
Over all very good experience. Fast and friendly staff and good facilities.

Nothing to add!

Excellent care throughout, very high standards throughout the hospital.
This was my second time going to this hospital and my experience from the first and this time has not changed
Too much form filling
A bit soulless
Overall good experience
Very smooth process, from initial admission through to discharge. Nurses were very friendly and helpful.
