The team at RB&HH Specialist Care works closely with a range of partners, agents, hospitals and consultants to provide first-class medical care for patients from across the world.
Increasingly, international patients are seeking treatment at Royal Brompton and Harefield to take advantage of the specialist expertise and advanced technologies unique to our hospitals.
If you are an agent or hospital from outside of the UK, read the below to find out what we can offer:
Management of overseas referrals
Our international liaison team at Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals works with healthcare organisations to ensure a seamless referral pathway for patients seeking heart and lung care in the UK.
We can help organise appointments and issue invitation letters for treatment (which help secure visas for travel to the UK). We can also coordinate the exchange of medical records amongst healthcare professionals, book accommodation and arrange interpreters during the patient’s stay.
Remote second opinions for medical treatment
RB&HH Specialist Care provides a remote second opinion service to overseas patients. Our expert consultants will review the patient’s medical reports and diagnostic tests, and provide their medical recommendation that can be shared with the patient’s doctor. This can be done via email, telephone or online using a range of online platforms.
Clinical training and Visiting Doctors Programme
RB&HH Specialist Care offers observership and clinical fellowship programmes within our hospitals, enabling doctors to develop their expertise in heart and lung care.
We also provide a visiting doctors programme where our consultants undertake a short visit to work alongside local consultants. During the visit, our consultant can help run outpatient clinics, operate on any appropriate patient cases, participate in clinical discussions and undertake CME lectures. Emergency visits can be organised on a case-by-case basis.
