The London Clinic and Shanghai International Medical Center (SIMC), Shanghai’s leading private hospital, have announced the start of a new strategic cooperation to deliver clinical services to Chinese nationals in China.

This is the first clinical service agreement between a Chinese and UK hospital where UK clinicians will be able to provide consultations, surgical intervention and knowledge transfer for the advancement of patient care in China.

While both hospitals provide a wide range of clinical services, the initial area for cooperation will be in urology, gynaecology and oncology. As the partnership develops, the range of services will expand to other clinical activities as well as doctor and nurse training programmes.

The agreement is making news in China and the UK with China Daily, Shanghai Daily and LaingBuission publishing stories about it.

Mr Al Russell, The London Clinic’s Chief Executive, said: “We are honoured and excited to have found such a progressive partner, who shares our pioneering values, within Shanghai International Medical Center (SIMC).

“The London Clinic has been a leading healthcare provider, serving patients from across the world, since our inception in 1932. This ground-breaking new relationship with SIMC will keep us at the forefront of patient care and support our aim of advancing healthcare.”

Mr YU, Executive Director and CEO of SIMC said: “As China celebrates its 70th anniversary, it is fitting that we also celebrate the bridging of China’s healthcare sector with that of the UK and specifically The London Clinic.

“With demand for healthcare in China growing so fast, ensuring we have committed partners to deliver world leading and value-based medical care from the UK means we will be able to match this demand.”
