As a leader in private healthcare in London, Cromwell Hospital is dedicated to continuing to innovate and improve healthcare. To support this commitment, we have opened a consultant-led Acute Admissions Unit.

Our Acute Admissions Unit is a referral-only service for UK-based and international patients aged 18 and over with serious but non-life-threatening illnesses, providing fast and frictionless access for admission to secondary care.

Led by a Consultant Acute Physician with support from a dedicated onsite multidisciplinary team, our Acute Admissions Unit provides immediate access to consultant-led specialties, including cardiology, orthopaedics, general surgery, and gynaecology to support a seamless patient journey.

Once assessed, our integrated service will ensure your patient’s care is managed by the most appropriate specialist consultant team, all under one roof at Cromwell Hospital.

Our Acute Admissions Unit is open 24 hours, seven days a week, including weekends and bank holidays. It is a referral-only service for adult patients with serious but non-life-threatening illnesses. We accept referrals from clinicians on behalf of private patients, consultants, embassies, or corporate clients.

We do not accept self-referrals from patients. If you are a patient and think you require admission, you can access our private GP services at Cromwell Hospital.
