King Edward VII’s Hospital announces its first appearance at Arab Health 2017
NEWS - 21ST NOVEMBER 2016
Located within the Harley Street Medical Area, King Edward VII’s Hospital is an independent, acute, private hospital famed for its medical excellence in treating complex and life threatening conditions.
A registered charity, with Her Majesty the Queen as its Patron, King Edward VII’s Hospital was initially established in 1899 to care for officers returning from the Boer War. Today the hospital treats anyone seeking private healthcare, and its charitable focus continues to support service and ex service personnel of all ranks. The hospital has developed a number of specialist areas including Pain and Neuroscience, Women’s Health and Orthopaedics.
Equipped with state of the art facilities and providing consistent clinical excellence within a culture of kindness, the hospital is renowned for its superb standard of nursing, and is the only hospital in the UK where Consultants are invited to practice.
King Edward VII’s Hospital embraces cutting edge technology and has recently entered a new partnership with Vital Imaging, giving Consultants access to 2D/3D diagnostic images from their browser, tablet or smartphone, providing them with the swiftest and most accurate diagnosis of patient conditions.
King Edward VII’s Hospital has also introduced London’s first ultra-high definition 4K integrated operating theatre. The very latest cameras and monitors have a resolution of 8 million pixels, four times more than standard. The combination of ultra-high definition monitors and extremely accurate colours offers surgeons the best vision and clarity when carrying out procedures.
Andrew Robertson, Chief Executive, said: “We are very excited to be attending Arab Health for the first time, and to showcase the high standards of private medical care that our hand-picked Consultants, outstanding nurses and first class staff have to offer.”
Leading Orthopaedic Surgeon Professor Justin Cobb commented: “The main reason for going to King Edward VII’s is human: the nursing staff are brilliant, ensuring that the patient is immaculately cared for both on the wards and in the operating theatre. Without that element, all the machines in the world would not be enough. As a surgeon it is just a pleasure to bring patients to the Hospital, knowing that they will be looked after perfectly. Of course the Hospital invests every penny in the latest technology, whether in the operating theatre, on the ward, in imaging or in the physio gym. As a charitable institution, it doesn’t have to send profit back to its shareholders, so can concentrate on doing the best for the patient”.
For over 200 years, the Harley Street Medical Area has continued to attract world-leading clinics and behind its Georgian façade lays the latest in cutting edge medical technology.
The Arab Health Exhibition and Congress is the largest healthcare event in the Middle East. It is taking place from 30th January to 2nd February at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre. Throughout the Arab Health Congress King Edward VII’s Hospital will be located on the Harley Medical Area Stand on the UK Pavilion stand Z1F30.
