We support patients, GPs and local hospitals with a Consultant-led medical admissions service.
Whether you are a patient yourself or a clinician that would like to refer your patient to us, KIMS Hospital runs a Consultant-led service for medical and surgical admissions. We can help arrange your referral from home or transfer from another hospital, providing prompt, safe quality care when most needed. Before we accept any admission, all referrals will undergo a triage process to ensure that the appropriate level of care is available.
Expertise and facilities for patients that need hospital care
A team of Consultant Physicians are able to treat and care for a wide range of conditions, from the common to the complex, including:
