    Mr Daren Francis is a leading Consultant General Surgeon specialising in Lower and Upper Gastrointestinal and Colorectal Surgery. He currently holds an NHS position at the Royal Free London Foundation Trust where he is the Lead for Emergency Surgical Services and Colorectal Cancer Services. Additionally, he practices privately with HCA Healthcare at The Harley Street Clinic and The Wellington Hospital. The talented surgeon offers robotic surgery treatments for rectal cancer and prolapse, along with minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures.

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.
