Centres of Clinical Excellence Limited
Centres of Clinical Excellence Limited is a private healthcare group in the UK. In October 2005, The Guardian reported that the group was planning "to build a chain of private hospitals across England in partnership with hundreds of frustrated NHS consultants." 
The company was registered in February 2004 as "Clinical Centres of Excellence Limited". It changed to the current name in October 2004. In the same month, a second company called "Centres of Clinical Excellence International Limited" was registered.
