“BGF was instrumental in helping us to execute our growth plan and make our company the fastest-growing dialysis provider in the UK”

BGF & Renal Services

In November 2014, we invested £3.1m into London-based healthcare business Renal Services. Alongside providing funding, we also helped the business to install greater governance, including the running of its board. We also introduced the team to its non-executive chair, James Buckley, former-CEO of Tunstall Healthcare.

Our investment and support enabled Renal Services to win new contracts and open 16 new clinics in the UK, as well as helping to buy out early investors in the business. In 2021, Renal Services was acquired by DaVita UK Limited. At the time of exit, the company was operating 21 dialysis units across the UK, treating over 1,300 permanent and transient patients with kidney disease.
