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. 

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. 

Located in the heart of the UK, Edgbaston Medical Quarter is attracting renowned hospitals, specialist care centres and clinicians.
