The takeover will see the 22 Blackberry Clinic facilities join the Bupa Health Clinics portfolio from February 2024.
It follows a partnership of over two decades between the companies – Blackberry Clinics has been offering Bupa health assessments since 2003.
“This acquisition is part of our long-term strategy to provide more of our Bupa services directly to customers,” said Sarah Melia, General Manager for Bupa Health Services. “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.”
Dr Simon Petrides, Medical Director and Founder of Blackberry Clinics added: “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.”
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.
