Bariatric Surgery London welcomes NHS and private patients

Information for international patients

Mr Ali Alhamdani welcomes international patients from all over the world.

You can be referred for treatment by your own doctor or specialists, who are able to send your medical notes and any relevant scans before your visit. Or you can make an appointment directly.

Before any intervention can take place I obtain all past medical history from the patient’s own doctors, if this is available. Should more information be required the International Liaison Officer at The Wellington Hospital facilitates the information gathering process. I also supply a detailed treatment plan to each patient when they are discharged from my care so they can provide this information to their own doctor back home.

An appointment can be made for you to have an initial consultation with Mr Alhamdani and then your surgery can be scheduled at either The Wellington Hospital or The Highgate Hospital in London.


Mr Alhamdani speaks English and Arabic and can conduct consultations in both languages. For international patients who speak other languages, an interpreter can be arranged.

Travelling to the UK

Mr Alhamdani’s clinics and surgery take place in London, which is served by the international airports at Heathrow and Gatwick. Both airports have good public transport and taxi links into central London.

Your accommodation while in the UK

The Wellington Hospital in London has an International Liaison Office who will help you find suitable accommodation for yourself and for any family members or friends who accompany you. Depending on your surgical procedure, you will spend some of the time in hospital, but part of your recovery period before flying home will be spent resting at your hotel. We advise patients to stay in hotels close to the hospital to make it easier for you to attend follow-up consultations and checks. You will need a consultation to confirm you can fly home after your procedure.
