Support for international patients
We know that visiting hospital can be a worrying time, especially if you’re travelling to us from abroad. That’s why our international patient coordinators are here to help by providing tailored support, so you can focus your full attention on getting better.
Our international patient coordinators can:
- advise on referrals – such as which consultant is most appropriate for your care
- liaise regularly with embassies and international contacts to keep them informed of your care as well as handling financial matters
- arrange appointments and admission to our hospital, as well as for professional interpreters to be present, if you require them.
Many of our international patient coordinators speak Arabic and are available across our three sites from Monday to Friday. They are also on-call for urgent queries, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
What’s more, many of our consultants speak multiple languages – you can find out what languages they speak on our directory of specialists.
