About Elite Sports Concierge

The elite sport concierge service is located at The Princess Grace hospital and was set-up by sports specialist consultant, Dr Akbar de Medici, with the support of Professor Fares Haddad. Both consultant have worked extensively with elite sport teams and developed the service to address specific issues – especially with acute medical care in this setting. The service offers a single point of access to medical amenities not available in a sports club environment.

Mr Medici and Dr Sirat Khan manage the day-to-day activity of this specialist service - using their complimentary attributes they coordinate a total care platform of medical cover for a wide spectrum of sporting injuries that require treatment.


Each consultant is able to arrange immediate medical assessment of an elite sport player within the Princess Grace Hospital by a senior Consultant or Professor. Blood tests, simple and complex diagnostic imaging (USS, CT and MRI) can be arranged by their team of doctors and nurses and, if needed, admission within the Princess Grace Hospital. 

Currently they support the majority of premiership football games in London, all Wembley games and support the Princess Grace Hospital, which provides medical cover for the NFL for their London games.
