The London Clinic opens new Rapid Diagnostics Centre


New Harley Street facility offers rapid tests and scans, with a focus on urology, gynaecology, breast and dermatology

The London Clinic, a private charitable hospital in the Harley Street Medical Area, has opened its new Rapid Diagnostics Centre. Located within a new six-floor purpose-built facility at 142-146 Harley Street, the centre will focus on urology (including prostate, bladder, testicular and renal), gynaecology, breast and dermatology. Patients will have access to appointments that start within 24-48 hours of booking, meaning that stressful waiting times are eliminated from the process.

Speed is also of the essence when it comes to diagnosis. Thanks to its state-of-the-art pathology lab, The London Clinic can now conduct and review tests and scans and get the results reported directly to the doctor or consultant within 72 hours of testing. When required, the centre will offer same-day access to radiological and endoscopic procedures, as well as minor surgeries to visualise tissue and take biopsies.

Al Russell, The London Clinic’s chief executive, said: “We know outcomes are hugely influenced by early diagnosis and our Rapid Diagnostics Centre will deliver exactly that. It will combine the best in science and clinical expertise with a warm and caring environment. As a charity, we want to advance healthcare for the benefit of the wider community. We will ensure access into service is broad, regardless of means, to support and extend as many lives as possible.”
