Located in Birmingham, the UK’s second largest city, Edgbaston Medical Quarter offers some of the best places for international private patients to receive healthcare – particularly in oncology, orthopaedics, trauma, diabetes, rehabilitation, fertility and mental health. 

The companies – Lexihealth and Medical VIP International – both offer ‘door-to-door’ health concierge services with transparent costs that allows rapid access to the best UK healthcare for patients from around the world and the Middle East.  

Designed to guide patients through every aspect of their needs, the bespoke services provide easy access to world-class healthcare in Edgbaston, Birmingham and help take the stress away. Whether this is choosing the right medical consultant to arranging travel logistics such as flights and accommodation for patients, their family or companions, right through to rehabilitation and repatriation. 

The personised service also includes lifestyle requests such as schooling, booking restaurants, organising translators, chauffeurs and city guides. 

Dedicated medical concierge gives referrers and patients choices, helping to deliver the best outcome by transparency, complete independence, trust and quality care. 

CEO of Lexihealth, Annabelle Neame, said:

“We manage the often-complex healthcare journey, from appointment negotiation to all the administration associated with one’s treatment and invoicing. Lexihealth offers a personalised and co-ordinated quality care with a discreet, bespoke handheld concierge service throughout. There is a single point of contact with dedicated patient liaison managers appointed to each case and with appointments, screenings and treatments at times and in locations to suit the patient.”

Dr Mahnaz Hashmi, Co-founder of Medical VIP International, said:

“Choosing a properly qualified independent healthcare practitioners whom you can trust, especially in a different country, can be extremely difficult.

Every patient can tailor the service to meet their needs and those of their family or companion.”

Mark Lee, Chief Executive, Calthorpe Estates which is home to EMQ, added:
