HSMA welcomes The Priory


The Harley Street Medical Area has welcomed The Priory, the leading provider of mental healthcare in the UK, to its hub of medical excellence

London’s prestigious Harley Street Medical Area has welcomed The Priory, the leading provider of mental healthcare in the UK, to its hub of medical excellence. The new Wellbeing Centre will provide accessible and individually tailored mental health support from the heart of Harley Street.

Located at 41 Harley Street, it will offer a range of services including psychological support throughout fertility issues, pregnancy, birth and bonding, as well as treating a wide range of conditions including depression, addictions, eating disorders and mental health services for young people over 12.

The Priory Group has invested nearly £300,000 in the centre, which will be staffed by a specialist team of psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and other healthcare professionals, offering a comprehensive range of treatment options.

Easy access
The new premises benefits from easy access to Oxford Circus, Regent’s Park and Bond Street tube stations, and offers a flexible and convenient outpatient appointment service from 8am until 8:30pm, meaning those with busy work schedules and other commitments can still access the support they need.

Andrew Hynard, CEO of The Howard de Walden Estate, said: “The Priory will add enormous value to the Harley Street Medical Area’s offering. Its specialists have a long and trusted track record of helping people affected by mental health issues and addiction.

“The opening of this new clinic in the Harley Street Medical Area is central to our overall vision, which is to attract the brightest talent in medicine and to deliver the very best patient care. I am delighted they have chosen to bring their huge wealth of expertise to our community.”

Expertise and experience
Dr Hayley van Zwanenberg, clinical director of Priory Group’s Wellbeing Centres and Priory Group’s associate medical director, said: “It is very exciting to be opening this new clinic in Harley Street, and for the team to offer their expertise and extensive experience to patients seeking urgent help and forward-thinking treatment for their mental health. We hope to extend The Priory’s role in offering early diagnosis and prompt intervention, and play a proactive part in supporting all patients towards a better quality of life and long-term recovery.

“Priory’s Wellbeing Centres have proven to be incredibly popular across the UK and it feels timely and appropriate that we should bring our expertise to a second central London location, synonymous with high quality and specialist healthcare.” Priory Healthcare, which is world renowned, has nearly 100 registered locations, comprising mental health hospitals and clinics.

In the past four years, the Harley Street Medical Area has attracted 45 new clinics. This latest tenant signing is part of the Estate’s three-year plan to become the most innovative, state-of-the-art global healthcare destination.

International patients
Mr Hynard added: “We are taking an active role in shaping the area’s clinical offering. A mental health and well-being facility such as this one is vitally important for patients visiting the area. As well as huge interest from UK patients, we are also seeing an increase in the number of international patients coming here to seek treatment. This new addition to our medical community will only boost those numbers further.”

Harley Street Medical Area is home to world experts undertaking pioneering research, developing new technologies and making inroads in treating and curing some of the most pressing and urgent health issues in the UK.

It has long been associated with medical excellence, having been a hub for the profession for 200 years. The Howard de Walden Estate is the guardian of the Harley Street Medical Area, having developed and supported the community since its inception.
