"On the 14th January 1957 the British United Provident Association (BUPA) established the Nursing Homes Charitable Trust. The trust wanted to acquire or build community hospital facilities properly equipped for the demands of modern medicine.
"In 1959, Lord Nuffield (the motor tycoon William Morris) then President of BUPA, suggested that the new charity might benefit from incorporating his name in its title and so it was re-registered as the Nuffield Nursing Homes Trust (NNHT)...
"July 2008, heralded the re-brand of Nuffield Hospitals, Proactive Health and Cannons to become Nuffield Health. Integrating fitness, prevention and cure across its different services and facilities under a single brand, governance and management structure became a reality. A merger toward the end of 2010 with the Bladerunner corporate fitness business established market leadership for Nuffield Health in the growing and dynamic corporate wellbeing sector."
