To protect our patients we need to limit visitors to our hospital. We recommend virtual visits where possible. Visitors will only be considered in exceptional circumstances, where one visitor will be permitted to visit. No children will be permitted to visit. The health, safety and well-being of our patients, family, carers and staff remain our absolute priority.
Permission for visiting must be discussed directly with Matron’s Office, and would be allowed under the following circumstances:
Visitors or escorts will no longer be allowed for outpatients, except in the following exceptional circumstances:
In these instances, visitors/carers that are allowed will be given appropriate information on precautions and PPE will be provided by the team. The reception team will keep a log of all visitors.
Staff will try to avoid disturbing you during these times, so you can enjoy your meal:
We ask that when visiting the Hospital as a guest of a patient, you respect all other patients by following these simple guidelines:
Please note: Flowers are not allowed in intensive care areas, due to strict infection control policies.
King Edward VII’s is conveniently located, within walking distance to Baker Street Station, Regent’s Park Station and Great Portland Street Station. We advise using public transport to visit, as parking is limited and we are in a congestion zone.
We are also only moments away from the charming Marylebone Village – see this shopping and dining guide for the area.
If you want to drive to the Hospital, please give yourself enough time to find a car parking space. Due to our central London location, we do not have an onsite car park. Paid meter parking may be available directly outside the hospital and we have porters and a door person who will be able to assist you with any luggage.
If you ask for information about a patient, a doctor or nurse will ask about your relationship to the patient. If applicable, the doctor or nurse will seek the patient’s permission before giving you any details about their condition and treatment.
We can’t give any medical information over the telephone. If a friend or relative is having an operation, the Ward Nurse will let you know how soon after the operation you can call to receive an update.
Post and parcels are delivered to the Wards throughout the day. To ensure safe delivery, include the patient’s full name and the Hospital address (King Edward VII’s Hospital, 5-10 Beaumont Street, Marylebone, London, W1G 6AA).
If you require any additional support prior to or during your visit, please let us know.
