We offer patients quick and easy access through GP referrals. Blackrock Health offers world-class clinical care and world-class comfort - over 75% of our rooms are single occupancy. This will help your patients make a quicker recovery.



The formation of the group has no impact on your patient’s health insurance or access. Blackrock Clinic is still classified as a high-tech hospital and the status of the other clinics has not changed.
