Welcome to Nightingale Hospital

We’re a team of professionals committed to helping people with mental health or emotional problems, eating disorders and addictions.

Our team of consultant psychiatrists, doctors, therapists and nurses treats each patient as an individual. That’s why we offer a range of evidence-based treatments through outpatient, day patient and inpatient programmes, all from our welcoming but discreet central London location – so our patients get the right treatment for them.

We are the leading private mental health provider in central London with over 25 years’ experience in mental health.

Our approach

In our confidential and safe environment we provide specifically tailored treatment programmes for our patients. These are underpinned by the understanding that every person is unique and faces their own challenges. Our approaches fundamentally embody respect, empathy and commitment towards our patients. Our care plans are practical, evidence-based and goal-orientated, designed to enable recovery, relapse-prevention and self-care. We are committed to protecting the rights and dignity of all patients whatever their race, creed, culture or beliefs. We work with our patients in partnership.

Our journey

This central London location has been a hospital since 1902 and the origin of its name lies in Florence Nightingale, a lady who revolutionised the medical profession by marrying high clinical standards to compassionate care. The hospital first became a Mental Health provider in 1987 and was called Bupa Nightingale.

In 1999 Capio Group, a European healthcare provider offering a diverse range of care bought the hospital and thus we became Capio Nightingale Hospital.

Our commitment to patient care helped the hospital grow into the leading mental health provider in the UK.

In 2014, Group Sinoué purchased the hospital, now called Nightingale Hospital. Groupe Sinoué has eight private mental hospitals in France delivering the full spectrum of psychiatric care and whose core values, culture and expertise are akin to that of Nightingale Hospital.
