The agreement enables Bupa’s UK health insurance customers to access care at Mayo Clinic Healthcare, including consultations, diagnostics, endoscopy, MRI and CT services at the clinic in Portland Place, London.

Mayo Clinic Healthcare also provides a secondary clinical review for Bupa customers who may benefit from pioneering CAR-T cell therapy. The complex breakthrough treatment uses patients’ own immune system cells to treat a small number of advanced cancers. Mayo Clinic Healthcare’s expert review will offer Bupa customers extra peace of mind.

Bupa and Mayo Clinic have a shared focus on offering high-quality healthcare and customer satisfaction. Mayo Clinic, with a primary value of putting the needs of patients first, is ranked the best hospital in the world by Newsweek and the No. 1 hospital in the United States by U.S. News & World Report. Mayo Clinic serves roughly 1.3 million people from nearly 130 countries every year.

Bupa was named Health Brand of the Year at health insurance industry magazine COVER’s ‘Recognising Healthcare Innovation Awards 2021’ and is rated ‘Excellent’ by customers on Trustpilot - the highest scoring major health insurer in the UK.

"The relationship with Bupa is an important part of the evolution and growth of Mayo Clinic Healthcare," says G. Anton Decker, MBBCh, a gastroenterologist and president of Mayo Clinic International. "We are privileged to partner with Bupa and it affirms our commitment to care for patients in comprehensive and collaborative ways."

Mayo Clinic Healthcare in London provides unhurried in-person and virtual care tailored to patients' needs. It offers comprehensive health assessments, second opinions for complex diagnoses and state-of-the-art diagnostic tests.
