Prior to joining BMI Healthcare, the UK’s largest provider of independent healthcare, Stephen Collier was a practising barrister with degrees from the London School of Economics and University College London. Having joined the company in 1982, Collier held a number of positions before becoming director of strategy and then group chief executive in 2011, governing the largest hospital group in the UK. Stephen has been prominent in working collaboratively with the Department of Health to extend the contribution of private healthcare organisations to the NHS.
