Edgbaston Medical Quarter is launching a new patient pathway to provide a door-to-door service to international private patients for complex healthcare treatments to Birmingham, the UK’s second largest city.
A past visitor to our pages, Edgbaston Medical Quarter considers itself a beacon for world-class medical excellence. As such it is keen to offer its services to international patients who seek treatment. One example, Circle Birmingham Hospital’s new 19,000 sq m (204,514 sq ft) state-of-the-art facility, is scheduled to open this summer. International private patients and referrers will have a choice of medical concierge options with transparent costs to access the best of UK treatments in oncology, orthopaedics, trauma, diabetes, rehabilitation, fertility and mental health.
Birmingham is a cosmopolitan city with over 40% of the population being from ethnic minorities – of which 21.8% are Muslim. Birmingham International Airport offers direct routes to over 150 worldwide destinations including Dubai and other Middle Eastern countries. Within Edgbaston Medical Quarter there are a wide range of accommodation options to suit individual patient needs, from high end boutique hotels and 4-star luxury hotels, to serviced apartments and homes to rent for family groups and longer stays.
Mark Lee, Chief Executive, Calthorpe Estates, which is home to Edgbaston Medical Quarter, said: “Patients choose Edgbaston because of its healthcare excellence, value, and access to eminent clinicians and the latest cutting-edge treatments. Edgbaston Medical Quarter’s medical facilities also sit alongside thriving leisure and lifestyle communities, which means family members and companions can enjoy award-winning places to eat and a host of arts, leisure and sports facilities. It is also a culturally diverse and welcoming city, with beautiful green open spaces which are the perfect place to relax and recover.”
“The new medical concierge services deliver a bespoke service and have been designed to guide patients through every aspect of their needs, they help to take the stress away by giving patients and referrers choice, transparency and access to world-class medical care.”
Edgbaston Medical Quarter will be attending next week’s Arab Health congress and can be found in the UK Pavilion, Hall 7 stand H7D50.
