Brian Donley is stepping down as chief executive officer of Cleveland Clinic London

Cleveland Clinic London has entered a clinical partnership with The London Clinic to provide oncology services to patients at their respective facilities.

Surgical oncology will be a core service offered by Cleveland Clinic London, which will open a eight-storey hospital in central London in early 2022. 

The hospital will be preceded by Cleveland Clinic London’s first outpatient centre in the Harley Street Medical Area, in autumn 2021. 

Under the partnership, The London Clinic, in Harley Street, will provide medical, radiation and other oncology services to patients who have surgery at Cleveland Clinic London. 

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. 

Dr Brian Donley, chief executive officer, Cleveland Clinic London, said: ‘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.’

Al Russell, CEO of The London Clinic, added: ‘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.’ 

Cleveland Clinic London hospital will have 184 inpatient beds, including 29 ITU beds; eight operating rooms; a full imaging suite; endoscopy and cardiac catheterisation laboratories; day case rooms for surgery; and a full neurological suite with rehabilitation. Beside comprehensive cardiovascular and thoracic services, it will offer orthopaedics, digestive diseases, neurosciences and general surgery.
