We continue to support your patients by offering virtual consultations during lockdown

We’re offering healthcare advice virtually to deliver safe care where possible, as we continue to support your patients.

As well as minimising travel and waiting times, our virtual consultations reduce patient numbers, making our hospital even safer for diagnostic tests and outpatient services.

To refer a patient, please call 020 8038 6527 or email enquiries@kingedwardvii.co.uk.

We remain open for private and NHS patients

We remain open during lockdown to provide care for private patients as we support the NHS. Thanks to our highly trained staff and breadth of expertise, we’re able to accommodate much of the demand around our private and NHS commitments.

You can still refer patients for virtual consultations, or face to face appointments in our COVID-secure outpatient rooms. Diagnostic tests and outpatient services are available as normal.

We urge the public to get the treatment they need, as we continue to provide safe patient care.
