NEWS - 23RD SEPTEMBER 2020
Two leading healthcare providers enter partnership to provide integrated oncology services
Cleveland Clinic London (CCL), a leading non-profit healthcare provider due to open in central London from 2021, will enter into a clinical partnership with The London Clinic, the internationally-renowned independent charitable hospital, to provide comprehensive oncology services to patients at their respective facilities. The partnership brings together two organisations committed to providing the highest quality patient-centred care and a seamless treatment pathway.
Surgical oncology will be a core service offered by Cleveland Clinic London, which will open an eight-storey, 325,000-square-foot building at 33 Grosvenor Place in early 2022. The hospital will be preceded by CCL’s first outpatient centre, at 24 Portland Place in the Harley Street Medical Area, in autumn 2021. As part of this partnership, The London Clinic, also part of the HSMA, will provide medical, radiation and other oncology services to patients who have surgery at CCL.
The two organisations are working to integrate their information technology systems to be able to share patient information securely and electronically. This will enable a seamless multi-disciplinary team approach to patients with cancer, with groups of specialists overseeing each patient’s care pathway to deliver the best possible clinical outcome.
Seamless care pathway
Dr Brian Donley, CEO of Cleveland Clinic London, comments: “We are excited to bring the Cleveland Clinic’s doctor-led model of care to the UK, and The London Clinic is an ideal partner in providing our cancer patients with a seamless care pathway that prioritises empathy and clinical excellence. 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, CEO of The London Clinic, said: “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.”
