As you are aware, Birmingham is the proud host of the 2022 Commonwealth Games, which will be a very exciting time for the city. However, it will inevitably cause some travel disruption for patients visiting the Priory and Edgbaston Hospitals. We therefore advise patients and visitors to check their route before they travel to either hospital.
Even though the Commonwealth Games are not due to start until 28th July 2022, road closures are occurring from 19th July 2022. This will include Church Road and part of Edgbaston Park Road, which will affect the commute between both the Priory Hospital and the Edgbaston Hospital.
In the immediate area around both The Priory and Edgbaston Hospitals, we are aware that the following events will cause some travel restrictions and upheaval:
There is extensive travel information on the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games website.

Once you and your GP have agreed that you need to see a consultant for further NHS treatment, you can inform them that you wish to be referred to The Edgbaston Hospital.
If you would prefer to see a female consultant due to religious reasons, prior sexual abuse, or just because of the intimate nature of the examination – we can help.
We believe this is a reasonable request. We also understand that there are many reasons why you would have more of a need for a female consultant than others.
