About us

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 20 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 leading European healthcare provider offering a diverse range of care through hospitals, primary care and specialist  clinics in Sweden, Norway, France, Germany and the UK bought the hospital and thus we became Capio Nightingale Hospital. Capio was founded in Sweden in 1994 and is the Latin word for “to take care of”. The word reflects Capio’s commitment to gain patient confidence by demonstrating the highest levels of clinical care and never forgetting the people Capio is here to help. Capio comprises approximately 60 units with 10,000 employees and treats over 3 million patients every year.
