THE DUCHESS OF DEVONSHIRE WING

The Duchess of Devonshire Wing is the largest private cancer facility to be built in London in the last 25 years and was officially opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in March 2010.

Investment into the eight floors of modern treatment areas ranges from positive pressure bedrooms (an important air flow management system for patients with compromised immune systems) to facilities for complementary therapies and the latest radiotherapy technology.

BONE MARROW AND STEM CELLS

The London Clinic’s stem cell transplant unit was established in 1985 and we are proud to be the only independent hospital to provide bone marrow stem cell collection and a harvesting centre for the Anthony Nolan charity.

The Clinic’s highly skilled medical staff are able to use the state-of-the-art facilities in our Duchess of Devonshire Wing to support the charity in providing life-saving donors for patients in need of bone marrow transplants.

We are also the first independent private hospital in the UK to gain JACIE accreditation in recognition of our quality standards in stem cell work.

NEW VICTORIA MEDICAL FOUNDATION (NVMF)

The London Clinic and NVMF have teamed up to jointly fund the medical care of patients in need of treatment for conditions, which though not life-threatening, are regarded as significantly impairing their quality of life.
