A private hospital group has won a national award for the second year running.

Spire Health Group, which runs Spire Norwich Hospital, picked up Hospital Group of the Year at the 2015 HealthInvestor Awards.

The event, run by trade publication HealthInvestor, attracted many award submissions with Spire pipping six other organisations to top spot.

In their comments, the judges said they were struck by the development of core services and the group's continued commitment to invest in its people.

They said: 'The hospital group clearly delivers high-quality care that exceeds the national average for clinical standards and award-winning levels of patients' expectations, while also investing in its facilities to ensure they are at the forefront of care.
