Bupa acquires Blackberry Clinics

Bupa Health Clinics is pleased to complete the acquisition of Blackberry Clinics, specialists in treating muscle, bone and joint conditions that cause people pain.

22 Blackberry Clinics will join the Bupa Health Clinics portfolio from February 2024. This follows a successful 20+ year partnership during which Blackberry Clinics have been offering Bupa’s comprehensive, market-leading Health Assessments since 2003.

Sarah Melia, General Manager for Bupa Health Services, said: “We’re delighted to bring Blackberry Clinics more closely into our Bupa Health Clinics portfolio. Our successful partnership with Blackberry Clinics has been in place since 2003, which has allowed us to reach more people with our expert health assessments. We know how much our customers value the expertise of the team and in-depth diagnostics that these health assessments offer to manage their long-term health and wellness.

“This acquisition is part of our long-term strategy to provide more of our Bupa services directly to customers. We’re looking forward to welcoming the Blackberry Clinic teams into the Bupa family and expanding our muscle, bone and joint services to meet our valued customers’ needs. Customers can expect to continue to access the same high-quality care they’ve always received at Blackberry Clinics.”

Dr Simon Petrides, Medical Director and Founder of Blackberry Clinics, said: “I’m very pleased that Bupa will be the new home of Blackberry Clinics. We’ve had a partnership for over 20 years, and we are confident that our customers and people will be very happy with the support, benefits and services that Bupa can provide.

“I’ll still be seeing patients as usual at the Milton Keynes clinic, so this is an exciting move for me as well, and I’m happy that we’ll be able to continue to offer our specialist musculoskeletal services to our customers, who will see no change in the way care is delivered.”

As part of its long-term plans to deliver more of its expert care directly to customers, Bupa Health Clinics also recently acquired The Smart Clinics, four specialist clinics in London that provide private GP appointments and healthcare services to their local areas.
