Two top units join forces in breast care

A new partnership will see King Edward VII’s Hospital provide advanced breast care services to patients for the yet-to-be opened 184-bed Cleveland Clinic London.

The deal, bringing together two not-for-profit healthcare providers, means that women having consultations at the US complex will have access to the independent charitable hospital’s facilities for diagnostics, screening and treatment.

Cleveland Clinic London opens its first outpatient centre at 24 Portland Place, in the Harley Street Medical Area, this September and its hospital is due to open early next year in Grosvenor Place. 

The comprehensive service at King Edward VII’s Hospital includes a Breast Health Centre, offering triple assessment breast screening, reconstructive and oncoplastic breast surgery.

Cleveland Clinic London’s boss Dr Brian Donley said: ‘Cleveland Clinic celebrates its 100th anniversary this year and as we prepare to welcome our first patients in London, we are proud to partner with other high-quality providers to deliver the best possible care. 

‘King Edward VII’s world-leading expertise in breast care will ensure that our patients receive the best preventative care and treatment.’

Lindsey Condron, chief executive at King Edward VII’s, said it was committed to providing the highest quality in women’s health services, ensuring women can access healthcare as a preventative measure as well as when intervention is needed.

He said: ‘There is clear synergy in the values of the two organisations and we’re proud to be partnering with Cleveland Clinic London in creating a seamless patient pathway that gives women greater access to the highest standards of care.’

 Services offered by Cleveland Clinic London’s Outpatient Centre will include in-house GPs, bespoke health assessments and specialist consultations.
