FAQs

At Mediaviation, we pride ourselves at organising a full bed-to-bed service for the Patients. This includes making sure that the receiving hospital in the UK is fully aware of the Patient coming in.

  1. Can hospital admissions be arranged abroad?
  2. Can hospital admission be organised for infectious patient?
  3. Can hospital admissions be secured in any UK hospital/ward?

  1. Can hospital admissions be arranged abroad?

    Mediaviation does not usually organise hospital admissions in foreign countries. The reason for this is that most countries do not have the same social security standards as the UK and as such, do not provide free public hospital admission and treatment for all. However, if hospital admission is required in another country than the UK and you wish for Mediaviation to work on this, please contact us and we will see whether this is possible.

  2. Can hospital admission be organised for infectious patient?

    If a Patient is infectious, they will not be able to travel on a scheduled commercial flight with medical escort until the infection is controlled, at which point, the hospital should not have any problem in admitting the Patient.
    Infectious Patients can be transported on an air ambulance and at Mediaviation we always make sure the UK hospital is fully ready for the Patient coming in to make sure an isolation room is fully prepared.

  3. Can hospital admissions be secured in any UK hospital/ward?

    Although Mediaviation very often manages to secure beds for Patients in relevant wards, it's common knowledge that some specific wards in UK hospitals can be extremely busy at times. Wards such as ICU (Intensive Care Unit), neurological or even orthopaedic can be overcrowded and a bed might not be available. If such a case arose, Mediaviation would arrange a bed in another hospital or an alternative option e.g. patient's 'pre-admission' and assessment in the A&E department until a bed in the relevant ward becomes available.
