London is home to some of the very best medical facilities in the world; Royal Brompton, Harley Street and Royal Marsden Hospital, to name just a few. When arranging a visit to London for medical treatment, choosing the right accommodation is of paramount importance to recreate the comforts of home for the duration of your stay.
In recent years, serviced apartment accommodation has become an increasingly popular choice for those travelling to London from overseas for medical treatment. Read on to find out how you can benefit from doing the same.
Seek Expert Accommodation Advice
First and foremost, it is very important to seek the help of an experienced agency with the local knowledge and industry know-how to find you the most suitable serviced apartment accommodation.
When it comes to medical visits, here at Find London Apartments we find that most patients and their families do not typically book an apartment for an initial evaluation or consultation – they generally make a booking when they already have a date confirmed for the operation or treatment to commence.
However, when determining the length of stay prior to the start of their treatment, patients are often advised in their home country to book an initial 3-4 week visit in order for them and their family to settle into their home away from home in London. This ensures they have a comfortable base whilst the patient undergoes treatment.
Experienced apartment agents – such as Find London Apartments – are here to alleviate the stresses of finding short to medium term accommodation, so those seeking medical treatment in the City and West End can concentrate on their health. They will take into consideration the patient’s individual requirements and provide a bespoke service to ensure that all requests are catered for. In cases where family members are travelling separately from the patient, Find London Apartments will source an apartment in the same building wherever possible.
As mentioned in one of our previous articles, when it comes to finding the right type of accommodation for a medical visit, location is key. For patients travelling to London from overseas, knowledge of the areas and districts will most likely be limited. This is where the help of a local, knowledgeable agency will help identify the best location for patient and family.

Length of Stay
At the beginning of treatment, based on doctor’s evaluation of patient’s medical condition and the proposed duration of the required treatment, extensions to the accommodation may be required. As previously mentioned, in some cases patients fly into London to see a specialist but may need to spend longer here to receive the proper care and make a full recovery.
Ongoing medical assistance once the patient has been discharged from hospital is often required in the form of follow-up appointments and further outpatient treatment. This means that the length of stay needs to be flexible so the patient and their family still has a stable residence in London.
The flexibility offered by serviced apartment accommodation makes it perfect for anyone undergoing a course of medical treatment. Serviced apartments make short-term rental much easier to both acquire and manage as you have the option to extend if needed.
