What we invest in
We work in partnership to advance medical knowledge and clinical excellence and to share best practice worldwide.
We invest in three important areas:
- improving patient care
- research and innovation
- education and training.
How your donations help patient care
We provide free accommodation for families, so they can be with a terminally ill family member during their final days. Our palliative care service was rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission during our last inspection.
We’re committed to supporting our patients living with cancer beyond their immediate treatment. The London Clinic has been awarded 5 stars by Macmillan Cancer Support for providing a high quality environment for patient care.
We believe exceptional care means making a patient’s stay in hospital as comfortable as possible. We aim to look after every detail; offering à la carte dining, patient entertainment and healing through our art and music programme, bringing musicians to play live on site and, on request, in our patient’s rooms.
Our Moving On programme, which helps patients transition from cancer to recovery after their treatment, includes complementary therapists, counsellors, dieticians, and chefs - all provided at no additional cost.
Our investment in innovation benefits patient care beyond our hospital. We work with our consultants to identify where our cutting-edge da Vinci Robot has spare capacity so we can provide it to University College London Hospital. This helps reduce waiting times so patients can get treatment faster.
How your donations help research and innovation
We work with leading clinicians to develop and expand access to the latest treatments.
In 2018 we became the only independent hospital to offer Adaptive Radiotherapy for treating bladder cancer.
We’re also the only independent hospital research centre in the UK to support clinical trials for a brain tumour treatment using Inter-Operative Radiotherapy to deliver high dose radiotherapy alongside surgical treatment.
Our Clinical Research Centre works with consultants to explore new areas, develop new techniques and advance healthcare.
We have experts helping to study the causes and impact of dementia, exploring the impact of running marathons on hips and providing high-resolution images for liver, chest and breast cancer studies amongst others.
How your donations help for training and education
We support our Fellows who are studying to become consultants by funding their research and consumable fees. This provides doctors with different types of experiences as well as an alternative route to progressing solely through the NHS.
We regularly fund high-level degree courses for clinical and non-clinical colleagues. As well as helping their career development, this also helps our teams to provide advanced, quality care for patients.
We work with the NHS and local universities to offer work placements to GPs as well as students studying radiography, physiotherapy and nursing.
