The Edgbaston Hospital

The Edgbaston Hospital offers treatments and services for those who live in Birmingham and further afield.

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:

  • Edgbaston Stadium will be home to the Women’s T20 Cricket from 29th July to 8th August
  • The University of Birmingham will have two functions at Games times:
    • From 22nd July to 11th August, the Athletes Village will host competitors from across the world. This is located at The Vale on Edgbaston Park Road
    • From 28th July to 8th August, it will be home to Hockey and Squash
  • In the run up to, and during this time, there will be restrictions in place to support the operation of the Games and reduce the impact on residents and businesses.

There is extensive travel information on the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games website.

You can also download two guides below for more information on road closures and the full schedule of events:

The Edgbaston Hospital has 55 beds, all rooms offer the privacy and comfort of en-suite facilities, satellite TV and telephone. The hospital has three theatres and a dedicated endoscopy suite. These facilities combined with the latest in technology and on-site support services, enable our consultants to undertake a wide range of procedures from routine investigations to surgery.

This specialist expertise is supported by caring and professional medical staff, with dedicated nursing teams and Resident Medical Officers on duty 24 hours a day, providing care within a friendly and comfortable environment.

The modern and spacious endoscopy suite serves patients with a wide range of endoscopic procedures, many of which will be carried out as a walk-in, walk-out service. The leading-edge suite is fitted with the very latest in endoscopic technology and this enables top quality high-definition images to be the captured.

How does Choose and Book work?

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.

Preference for Female Gynaecologists?

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. As such we have a number of female consultant Gynaecologists that are available to NHS patients at The Edgbaston Hospital via Choose and Book.
