Although Bupa has no shareholders and a somewhat peculiar legal status, having been born from the merger of provident health associations, it is a private company limited by guarantee. This means it is run along the similar lines as public limited company, and while it turns a healthy profit, these are supposed to be reinvested in the business.
Bupa is an international not-for-profit private healthcare company, providing health insurance, care homes, health at work services, hospitals, dental clinics and health assessments. They run over 300 residential care homes in the UK.
