International patients

We welcome private patients from around the globe who are looking for the convenience of a central London location and the clinical expertise and reputation that a teaching hospital such as ours can offer.

As part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, you will benefit from all the medical and surgical support that a leading NHS hospital can provide.

Our consultants are experts in their fields, leaders in innovation and hold senior teaching and professorships with some of the world’s best universities. It’s because of their dedication to research and active involvement in research programmes that we can offer leading-edge technology and new advancements in surgical techniques and medicine.

We go out of our way to ensure our patients have a home-from-home experience.

From the outset you and your family will experience high levels of customer care at every stage from enquiry to discharge. We want to make it easy for you to understand all aspects of your care and provide translation services in many languages.

Our private patient facilities offer high quality accommodation with ensuite rooms providing privacy and comfort, and some of the best views of London, including the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

Language and cultural needs

We welcome patients from the Middle East and around the world. Our aim is to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible. All our teams are given cultural awareness training, so they meet your cultural and religious needs with sensitivity and understanding.

We provide specialist menus including halal, kosher, vegetarian and Asian meals and cater for clinical dietary requirements. Our dedicated hospitality team is on hand to discuss any special requirements.

Private patients have access to multi-faith prayer rooms on the St Thomas’ and Guy’s sites and we also provide prayer mats.

Our dedicated on-site translators provide language support and interpretation services. This service is free of charge for private patients.
