The London Clinic provides access to the latest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of liver disease. We offer the highest technological service matched by expert and caring staff. 

Our specialist liver disease consultants work within large multi-disciplinary teams to offer the best care to patients, their family and friends.

Many of the consultant hepatologists at The London Clinic have been responsible for key developments in the treatment of liver disease.

The London Clinic offers liver function tests that can be used to diagnose problems in the liver long before they start to cause symptoms. Often liver disease shows no definite symptoms until it is well advanced, so screening tests can help you get the treatment you need as early as possible.

Liver specialists, nurses and multi-disciplinary teams at The London Clinic provide the latest treatments for:

  • Fatty liver disease.
  • Viral hepatitis: hepatitis B
  • Viral hepatitis: hepatitis C
  • Cirrhosis
  • Portal hypertension
  • Liver cancer

LONDON LIVER GROUP

The London Clinic provides access to the latest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of liver disease.

The outpatient facilities are based on the fourth floor of 116 Harley Street, where you will find rooms for consultants and for the liver clinical fellows and nurse specialist.

Inpatients are cared for on the fifth floor of the main hospital, with 16 dedicated en suite liver beds.  A specially trained nursing staff and sister are in post to care for the specialist needs of every liver patient.

Close working links are in place with the Intensive Care Unit on the first floor of the hospital, where liver patients with decompensation and multi organ failure are cared for.

Patients with malignant disease and haematological disorders are often cared for jointly in the oncology ward.

All the London Liver Group consultants hold or have held senior teaching positions in major NHS teaching hospitals.

In addition, our pathologists and radiologists are all highly experienced in the reporting of liver disease. 

The centre also has links with consultant gastroenterologists, who have specialist endoscopic skills required for the treatment of complex liver disease.

Leading the way

Through its consulting staff the Liver consultants at The London Clinic have various links and collaborative arrangements with a number of NHS teaching hospitals.

We also have a close working relationship with Kings College Hospital under the direction of Professor Nigel Heaton, supporting both pre and post liver transplant management.

We are also involved in the coordination of several groundbreaking clinical research programmes under the governance of the clinical trial centre at The London Clinic. Our current programmes include investigations into immunological factors involved in clearing viral hepatitis and liver regeneration related to surgical liver resections for benign and malignant (cancer) liver tumours.

We were the first in the UK to use the ALFA implantable pump system for control of ascites in patients with cirrhosis. The device eliminates the need for repeated paracenthesis, with a considerable improvement in quality of life as a result.
