Prince Philip has been transferred to St Bartholomew’s Hospital, Buckingham Palace has revealed. There, doctors will continue to treat him for an infection – as well as run testing for a pre-existing condition.
Buckingham Palace said in a statement: “The Duke of Edinburgh was today transferred from King Edward VII’s Hospital to St Bartholomew’s Hospital where doctors will continue to treat him for an infection, as well as undertake testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition.
“The Duke remains comfortable and is responding to treatment but is expected to remain in hospital until at least the end of the week.”
Prince Philip was treated for a blocked coronary artery in 2011 at Papworth Hospital.
St Barts Hospital is well known for being excellent in cardiac care. Its heart centre is Europe’s largest specialised cardiovascular service.
While it provided more details on Prince Philip’s health condition, the palace remained tight-lipped on the kind of infection Prince Philip is suffering from.
