BMI The Priory Hospital is the largest private hospital in Birmingham and offers a wide range of treatments and services with access to some of the latest technology and equipment. We not only pride ourselves with performing a wide variety of procedures in the fields of Orthopaedic Surgery, General Surgery, Gynaecology and Urology, we can also offer more complex procedures such as cardiac, thoracic and cancer surgery as we have an Intensive Care Unit, giving patients and consultants the peace of mind that a higher grade of care is on hand, as and when required.

Our commitment is to provide patients with quality and value, with facilities for advanced surgical procedures together with friendly, professional care.

Our facilities, combined with modern technology and on-site support services, enable our consultants to undertake a wide range of procedures from routine investigations to complex surgery. We have international patients visiting some of our consultants here at BMI The Priory Hospital as many will travel to see the best in their field.

BMI The Priory Hospital operates on a multitude of different specialties, below lists just some of the facilities:

We can also offer patients the option of spending time at our sister hospital Circle Rehabilitation if they feel they would like to extend their care if they do not feel ready to return home post-surgery. This will take place at Circle Rehabilitation which is less than a mile away on Pebble Mill Road.

BMI The Priory Hospital also offers outpatient services in Sutton Coldfield at Sutton Medical Centre.

We offer free parking for all our patients at the hospital.
