The London Clinic opens rapid diagnostics centre



The London Clinic has opened a new Rapid Diagnostics Centre in London’s medical district, at 142-146 Harley Street.

The Centre will focus on urology, gynaecology, breast and dermatology, as well as support a focus on early diagnosis, particularly in cancer.

Patients can book in for the Rapid Diagnostics Centre and be seen within 24-48 hours.

According to research conducted by The London Clinic through market research company Censuswide, almost a fifth (19 per cent) of Brits are currently waiting for a symptom to be diagnosed and almost 3 in 5 (58 per cent) said waiting for a diagnosis caused them stress and anxiety

Chief Executive, Al Russell, 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.”

The London Clinic is equipped to host a patient’s entire health journey from from diagnosis to treatment in a safe and caring environment.

The Rapid Diagnostics Centre is located in a prime location at 142-146 Harley Street, in a new six-floor purpose-built space, right across from The London Clinic’s main hospital.

With its own state-of-the-art pathology lab on-site, The London Clinic can conduct and review tests and scans, and get the results reported directly to the doctor or consultant within 72 hours of testing ensuring that patient waiting time and worry time is significantly reduced.

The Centre can also offer same day rapid access to radiological, endoscopic procedures and minor ‘surgeries’ to visualise tissue and take biopsies.

And once a treatment plan is in place, patients will be offered personalised support which could include therapy-based treatments such as Talking Therapies (with specialised psychologists), physiotherapy (including pilates and pelvic health), dietetics, or occupational therapy, where clinically required.

Patients of The London Clinic are treated to the highest standard of patient care, with a concierge service, a carefully curated menu from professional chefs, and access to a direct 24/7 support phone number for any follow-up questions and concerns.

In addition, patients who remain with the clinic for treatment will be supported by dedicated Clinical Nurse Specialists who follow patients through the entire patient journey.

Mr Debashis Ghosh, Clinical Divisional Director and Consultant Breast and Oncoplastic Surgeon, said:   “We are proud to be part of the Rapid Diagnostics Centre, a new state-of-the-art development that will accelerate the diagnostics pathway for all our patients, and which closely aligns with The London Clinic’s cancer strategy: ‘early diagnosis saves lives’.”
