Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where are we based?
A: The Clinic is based from the largest provider of private healthcare in the UK, BMI Healthcare, at BMI The Priory Hospital, Edgbaston, Birmingham and BMI The Edgbaston Hospital, also located in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
BMI is registered with the Healthcare Commission and is committed to high quality and value, providing excellent state-of the art facilities for advanced diagnostic and surgical procedures combined with dedicated professional care. Such a high standard of facilities enables us to offer a one- stop diagnostic clinic for common bladder and prostate problems.
All outpatient consultations, diagnostic testing and any surgical procedures will all take place at the same hospital, offering you continuity throughout your treatment. Both Hospitals are supported by friendly and professional medical staff, with dedicated nursing teams and Resident Medical Officers who are on duty 24 hours a day, which compliment our clinic by providing care within a comfortable caring environment.
Q: What if I live Outside the West midlands Area?
A: Due to the highly specialised nature of the work of the Birmingham and Solihull Bladder Clinic, it attracts many patients from outside of the West Midlands area and beyond. Patients who are travelling from outside of the West Midlands area will benefit from many of our diagnostic procedures being undertaken on the same day as initial outpatient consultation, to save unnecessary visits to the clinic wherever possible.
Both hospitals are based just a short distance from Birmingham City Centre, making it convenient for patients who wish to travel from out of the Midlands area as there are convenient links by road or rail- making the clinic easily reachable by an hour and a half from London/ the South.
Birmingham International airport is just a twenty minute taxi ride away from the hospital for those patients wishing to travel from further afield. The Birmingham and Solihull Bladder Clinic secretary can offer a list of nearby hotels and taxi companies.
