At the London Clinic we are proud and delighted to pay tribute to our team of nearly 400 nurses whose’ collective passion, integrity and dedication to the treatment and recovery of our patients, is exemplary. We have celebrated this with an inaugural Nursing Awards ceremony and the launch of our ‘Proud to be a London Clinic Nurse’ video.
Theresa Murphy, Director of Nursing/ Matron, comments: “This year is all about celebrating The London Clinic nurse - someone who delivers exceptional patient care and is both passionate and technically superb.”
Our nurses come from all across the world (The London Clinic has employees from over 60 different countries) and they ensure every patient is looked after with individually tailored care, warmth and expertise. It is an honour for us to celebrate International Nurses Day in recognition of their essential work, dedication and compassion, at the heart of healthcare.
Tracey Simpson, Clinical Nurse Specialist comments: “A London Clinic Nurse is someone who is in a privileged position to be supporting patients at some of their most vulnerable times, right at the beginning of their journey, during treatment and getting them fit and ready to go home.”
As well as looking after our patients, our Nurses at The London Clinic also look after one another. Nalishebo Elliot, Senior Nurse, says: “I feel very privileged to be able to make a difference in the area of being a role model to other fellow nurses who are coming up in the nursing profession.
“You’re in an environment where you can grow in your leadership and your nursing qualities, and by that I mean your respectfulness, your considered approach and your understanding.”
The celebrations culminated in a special service held at Westminster Abbey to commemorate the life of Florence Nightingale and to mark the centenary of Edith Cavell. This was attended by Theresa Murphy, Director of Nursing, alongside senior members of our nursing staff, and the Cleveland Director of Nursing.

“Our Nurses are the glue between our Consultants, our patients and our hospital. We have lots of wonderful buildings around Harley Street, but they’re nothing without our nurses providing the care they give our patients. It’s a privilege for me as the CEO to support them,” says Al Russell, Chief Executive.
On behalf of everyone at The London Clinic, all our patients and their loved ones, thank you to all our Nurses for the enormous contribution they make.
