Medical Stays in London: Find a Home Away from Home

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 accommodation for a medical stay in London, it’s important that you choose a place that makes you feel as comfortable as if you were at home, even more so during this period of Covid 19.

It’s for good reasons that serviced apartment accommodation has become increasingly popular. This is especially true for those visiting from overseas for medical treatment. To make things easier, we’ve put together some tips for finding London accommodation for medical stays.

Pick the Best Locations for Medical Stays in London

When it comes to finding the right type of accommodation for a medical stay, location is key. But if you are travelling to London, it is often hard to know which areas are close to the hospital and what location to pick. But don’t worry, we can help!

Have a look at our list of the most popular London hospitals and serviced apartments close by.

We also offer an independent service to help you identify the best locations. With a long and proud history of providing serviced apartments close to the city’s many hospitals, we’re in a good position to help you.

We will work closely with you to establish your exact requirements, no matter where in London you need to be based. All you’ll need to do is name the medical establishment and let us take care of the rest.

How Long Should You Book Accommodation For?

Initially we would recommend you to book your accommodation based on your doctor’s advice and the estimated length of treatment.

But there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to medical accommodation as often extensions are needed. In many cases patients fly into London to see a specialist, but end up having to spend longer here to receive the proper care and make a full recovery.

Once you have been discharged from hospital you may have to attend follow-up appointments and further outpatient treatment. This means that the length of stay needs to be flexible.

This is why serviced apartment accommodation is perfect for anyone undergoing medical treatment. Serviced apartments are great for short-term rentals and also offer an option to extend if you need to.

 Seek Expert Advice for your Medical Accommodation

Here at Find London Apartments, we are an experienced independent agency. We have the local knowledge and industry know-how to find you the most suitable serviced apartments for your medical stay.


We find that most patients and their families do not typically book an apartment for an initial evaluation or consultation. Generally they make a booking when they already have a date confirmed for the operation or treatment to commence.

However, when determining how long to stay before the start of your treatment, it is often advisable to book an initial 3-4 week visit so that you and your family can settle into your home away from home in London. This ensures you all feel comfortable while you undergo treatment.

We are here to help reduce the stresses of finding a place to stay, so that you can fully concentrate on your health. We offer short-term and medium-term accommodation, completely based on your individual requirements. Our bespoke service ensures that all requests are catered for. In cases where your family members travel separately, we will be able to source an apartment in the same building.

We also offer a personal service with plenty of advice! For a taster, have a look at things to do during your visit in London.
