The London Clinic is delighted to continue as the first hospital in the UK to host live screenings from the Royal Opera House, for our patients, consultants and employees to enjoy.

On Tuesday 11 June, we will be live streaming Romeo and Juliet, where Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers encounter passion and tragedy in Kenneth MacMillan's 20th-century ballet masterpiece.

We hope the production will bring joy to our patients and their visitors, in the comfort of their own rooms.

A recent major investment in our patient television services means that we are uniquely positioned to provide this experience at The London Clinic. We believe that music, art and creativity can lift the morale of our patients, which may help their treatment and recovery.

Live-streaming the Royal Opera House performances, provides a wonderful opportunity to re-connect with the outside world. It is an integral part of the artistic and cultural programme implemented throughout the Clinic, for holistic and patient-centred care.

Denis Roche, Consultant Curator, commented:

“Throughout history, it has been recognised that the arts can have a role to play in the recovery of a patient, helping them to cope with a diagnosis and hospitalisation. More and more research points to the clinical benefits that these programmes can have in terms of health-related quality of life. Importantly, it keeps a patient connected to life outside of the hospital.” 

Patients can tune into channel 555 to watch the performances.
