Construction work to transform a central London property into a new health clinic is nearing completion, ahead of the first launch from a new joint venture between two of the world’s-leading names in healthcare and medical research.

Mayo Clinic Healthcare in partnership with Oxford University Clinic sees US hospital group, Mayo Clinic, and Oxford University Clinic, itself a joint venture between the University of Oxford and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, collaborate to open a new premium healthcare facility in the Harley Street Medical Area, part of The Howard de Walden Estate.

The new facility will mark Mayo Clinic’s first foray into the UK healthcare market.

The clinic, due to launch this summer, will offer preventative medicine, screening and diagnostic services, including personalised health plans tailored to both individual and corporate clients.

Located directly opposite the BBC, the new clinic at 15 Portland Place will also be able to draw on the world-class expertise of the two parent organisations – offering access to an unrivalled network of global health experts and offering a highly-personalised approach to preventative healthcare.

Ben Hume, clinic manager for Mayo Clinic Healthcare in partnership with Oxford University Clinic, said: “After months of building work, we are now entering the final phases of construction, where we can finally see the clinic’s client and medical spaces taking shape.

“When it comes to preventative healthcare, we believe there is a gap in the market and an appetite for healthcare which is not only high quality, but highly personalised and tailored to the needs of the individual.

“With state-of-the-art MRI and CT machines now successfully installed, we are counting down the months until opening and look forward to welcoming our first clients this summer.”
