Commenting on the results, Priory Group Chairman Mike Jeffries said:

"I am pleased that the Group has recorded another solid quarter of growth following our robust first half performance.  However, given the ongoing backdrop of commissioning reforms, certain elements of our business underperformed our expectations towards the end of the period.  This underperformance has continued into October with our acute hospitals, education and specialist care businesses particularly affected by uncertainty at a NHS funder and local authority level which has had the effect of delaying the time period between referrals and admissions.

"Although the timeline from referral to admission is likely to lengthen in the short term given the reforms, Priory's position within the marketplace remains strong and, ultimately, the disruption is only likely to delay decision making rather than result in lost business for the Group.

"However, as a result of this disruption, we now anticipate a c.2 to 3% reduction in our full year EBITDA performance against our previous guidance of £135m excluding the impact of acquisitions and additional ongoing quality costs.  

"Despite the near term hiatus in the referral process, the fundamentals underpinning the markets in which we operate remain favourable and the Group firmly believes that the healthcare commissioning reforms will ultimately have a positive impact on Priory once they are fully implemented in the longer term."
