A global survey among tens of thousands of medical professionals (doctors, health care professionals and hospital managers) has identified Royal Brompton hospital in the top ten hospitals worldwide for cardiology.
The ‘World's Best Specialized Hospitals 2021’ survey, published by American weekly news magazine Newsweek, has ranked the world’s best hospitals in a number of specialised fields. Royal Brompton Hospital was ranked tenth in the cardiology listing, the only UK hospital to appear in the list’s top 50, with Harefield Hospital also rated in the top 200 - only 8 UK units in total achieved this milestone.
The ranking is based on peer recommendations for specific areas of expertise from doctors, health care professionals, hospital managers and administrators from over 20 countries. Newsweek partnered with global market research and consumer data firm Statista Inc. to run the survey, which saw more than 40,000 medical experts recommend and assess various hospitals within their respective specialisations. The results of the survey were then validated by a global board of renowned medical experts.
Commenting, Dr Mark Mason, Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust’s medical director, said: “Our Trust has long been a destination centre for professionals from around the globe and we have taught and continue to train some of the best and most talented clinicians in Europe and beyond. Our expert teams of clinicians, academics and researchers have a clear focus on innovation, enabling us to improve the care and outcomes for patients through multi-disciplinary collaboration. Receiving an endorsement like this from peers around the world is extremely encouraging and will be welcomed enormously by colleagues.”
