152 Harley Street is a centre of medical excellence, providing some of the most advanced procedures and treatments spanning multiple specialist areas within plastic, reconstructive, cosmetic surgery and dermatology.

Within each of these specialist areas there are sub-specialists such as oculoplastics. These are surgical procedures done around the eyes. You may have this procedure to correct a medical problem or for cosmetic reasons.

Another example of a sub-specialist area would be surgical dermatology. These specialist doctors perform procedures such as Mohs surgery which is done to remove certain skin cancers. During this process, the cells are examined by the surgeon microscopically while the patient waits, boasting a remarkable cure rate of 99% for most basal and squamous cell skin cancers as well as a high cure rate for other rare forms of skin cancer.

Offering such expertise and specialist procedures it is vital we have the correct safety and quality measures and advisory groups to ensure that every patient who visits our clinic receives the highest quality of care, advice and treatment.

Regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and operating within this framework gives us the foundations to deliver the highest quality of care. Additionally, we have established advisory boards and specialist groups made up of clinicians who ensure clinical standards of care, safety and quality are maintained at the facility.

In addition to care, safety and quality, these groups ensure we are at the forefront of innovation and continuous training to develop our people and offer patients the best treatments available.

The Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) comprises consultant experts who practice at 152 Harley Street. Their primary focus is to ensure excellent standards of care, safety and quality are maintained at the facility.

The MAC is responsible for advising 152 Harley Street on accreditation of practitioners necessary to provide services at the facility and the delineation of their clinical responsibilities.

Although the criteria between clinics can vary, for a new consultant to work within 152 Harley Street, they must:

  • Be part of the General Medical Council (GMC) Specialist Register
  • Hold a substantive post within the NHS
  • Provide documented evidence demonstrating their clinical experience
  • Have actively practised in their field for a minimum of two years

Whilst the primary focus of the MAC is to approve new consultants to enable them to practice at 152 Harley Street, the MAC also allows time to explore changes within the GMC, National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE) and CQC regulations to ensure 152 Harley Street maintains their full compliance.

Given that 152 Harley Street is expanding at pace, new procedures, technologies and systems are also discussed, and decisions are made on whether they should be adopted within the clinic.
