Cleveland Clinic London (CCL), a non-profit healthcare provider which will begin operations next year, is entering into a clinical partnership with The London Clinic, an independent charitable hospital
The two will provide comprehensive oncology services to patients at their respective facilities in central London.
Surgical oncology will be a core service offered by CCL, which will open a eight-story, 325,000-square-foot building in central London in early 2022. The hospital will be preceded by CCL’s first outpatient centre in the Harley Street Medical Area in autumn 2021. As part of this partnership, The London Clinic, in Harley Street, will provide medical, radiation and other oncology services to patients who have surgery at CLC.
The London Clinic has a cancer treatment centre in its Duchess of Devonshire Wing, a facility spanning eight floors.
The two organisations stated they are working to integrate their IT systems to be able to share patient information securely and electronically, and enable a seamless multidisciplinary team approach to patients with cancer, with groups of specialists overseeing each patient’s care pathway to deliver the best possible clinical outcome.
Dr Brian Donley, CLC’s chief executive, said: “Cleveland Clinic’s focus on driving research and innovation enables us to deliver the safest, most effective patient care. We are proud to be partnering with such a highly regarded provider in The London Clinic which has a similar patient-centred ethos.”
Al Russell, chief executive of The London Clinic added: “We’re delighted to announce this partnership with Cleveland Clinic London. It’s an organisation that aligns with our values and interests, prioritising exceptional patient care above profit. Working together we will create integrated pathways to support huge numbers of cancer patients in the years to come, all the time learning from each other for the benefit of the patient.”
