The London CyberKnife® Centre rated Outstanding by the CQC

The London CyberKnife Centre at The Harley Street Clinic, part of HCA Healthcare UK, has been rated Outstanding by national regulators the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The Centre, home to the UK’s first robotic CyberKnife radiotherapy machine, offers treatment to patients with tumours and other medical conditions that may previously have been considered inoperable or untreatable.

The CyberKnife Centre worked in partnership with the NHS to offer access to NHS patients and share knowledge and experience of CyberKnife treatment to help support the development of more centres in London.

This result follows the Outstanding rating awarded to The Harley Street Clinic and its radiation oncology cancer services, which you can read more about here.

The London CyberKnife Centre at The Harley Street Clinic was marked out by the CQC for innovation; offering some of the world’s first ‘CyberHeart’ treatment for atrial fibrillation. This involved a collaboration between experts across CyberKnife, radiology, cardiology and a tech company to provide a new non-invasive treatment.

The CQC also praised the CyberKnife Centre’s ‘excellent’ multidisciplinary team approach, bringing together consultants and specialists with different expertise to help decide on the best treatment plan for a patient.

Investigators reported on the patient centred approach at The London CyberKnife Centre with patients saying that that staff went the extra mile and that the care they received exceeded their expectations.

Aida Yousefi, CEO of The Harley Street Clinic, said:

“I am delighted that The London CyberKnife Centre has joined The Harley Street Clinic in achieving an Outstanding rating from the CQC.

“The centre is committed to offering patients access to the latest in expertise and innovation; from being the first in the UK to provide access to a robotic CyberKnife to being one of the few places in the world to offer CyberHeart treatment. It is great that this, alongside the dedication and hard work of our compassionate staff and consultants, has been recognised by the CQC.”

England’s Chief Inspector of Hospitals, Professor Sir Mike Richards, said:

 “It’s always encouraging when we find an Outstanding service and this was certainly the case with The CyberKnife Centre London.

“We found excellent multidisciplinary team working. Feedback from people who use the service and those who are close to them was consistently positive about the way staff treated people.

“Governance structures were well organised and well embedded and worked effectively to ensure there were clear lines of communication between key groups.”
