Mayo Clinic and Oxford University Clinic open preventative private healthcare facility in London
NEWS - 3RD OCTOBER 2019
Two of the world’s leading names in healthcare and medical research- US academic medical centre Mayo Clinic and Oxford University Clinic have opened a preventative healthcare facility in London’s Harley Street Medical Area.
The new private health clinic on Portland Place, W1 will provide advanced screening and diagnostics services with personalised health plans for individual and corporate clients. The programme is based on the executive health screening service that Mayo Clinic has refined over 40 years and is designed for people who want to take a proactive approach to managing their health.
The clinic is the first manifestation of a joint venture designed to drive advances in medical research between the not-for-profit Mayo Clinic, the No. 1-rated hospital in the US, and Oxford University Clinic, a partnership between the University of Oxford and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The new facility is the first example of what is expected to be a long-term collaboration between the two organisations.
The facility’s core medical team, who are drawn from the UK and the US, will be salaried meaning they are not paid on the volume of patients seen or tests performed. The physicians are experts in general and preventive medicine, executive stress and burnout, sleep medicine and travel health, and will have direct access to the expertise of thousands of physicians and scientists at Mayo Clinic and Oxford University Clinic.
Dr Stephen Cassivi, medical director at Mayo Clinic Healthcare in partnership with Oxford University Clinic and vice chair of the Department of Surgery at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, says:
“We are delighted to partner with Oxford University Clinic to bring this premium healthcare facility to London. Together, we bring a patient-centred ethos, with the patient’s needs and experience front and centre of everything we do — whether that’s a warm welcome by our front of house team, to the time and care spent with our physicians. After years of hard work, we are excited to be launching this new clinic and to be welcoming our first clients through the door.
“Between Mayo Clinic and Oxford University Clinic we have over 150 years of experience in healthcare delivery and medical research — indeed, Mayo Clinic has its roots in the UK, with our founding father William Worrall Mayo hailing from Salford, Greater Manchester. As a not for profit healthcare organisation, revenue is reinvested to further patient care, education and research. We are constantly seeking new ways to innovate and collaborate to ensure we stay at the forefront of medical treatment and care.”
Dr Bruno Holthof, Chief Executive of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, adds: “Mayo Clinic is widely recognised as a world leader in healthcare and so we are excited to be working with colleagues from Mayo through this transatlantic partnership.
“The new London clinic is the first step for the joint venture and is the key focus for all partners involved at this stage but we are looking forward to exploring other areas for possible collaboration in the future.”
new clinic’s physicians will have ample time to dedicate to every person they see, allowing any concerns to be explored within the context of an individual’s lifestyle, career, family and genetic history. Everyone who visits the facility will be guided through a series of carefully selected assessments and checks based on their own individual circumstances and utilising state of the art equipment and technology.
Clients will also have access to a suite of high quality and well-equipped amenities, such as the on-site Executive Lounge and Business Hubs and dedicated concierge staff will provide expert guidance on accommodation, restaurants, and the local area.
