About us

Welcome to Parkside Private Hospital

Parkside Private Hospital is one of the leading private hospitals in South-West London. We opened in 1983 and are located opposite Wimbledon Common. Our hospital is easily accessible from Central London and the surrounding areas.

For over 35 years, we have provided first-class independent healthcare for the local community. We can offer you a peaceful stay in a private en-suite room and fast access to a consultant. Parkside takes pride in high standards of care and a friendly atmosphere.

We welcome patients who have private medical insurance or choose to pay for their own treatment. Parkside also provides some specialist services to NHS patients.
