Aida Yousefi appointed Chief Executive Officer of The Harley Street Clinic

Aida Yousefi has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer of The Harley Street Clinic, one of the UK’s flagship private hospitals.

Aida, who was acting CEO, succeeds Neil Buckley, who after seven years as CEO was recently appointed CEO of The Wellington Hospital in North London.

The Harley Street Clinic, in Weymouth Street and Harley Street, has an international reputation for the complex or tertiary medicine practiced there and in particular for the cardiac, cancer and neurosciences disciplines. Uniquely in the private sector, The Harley Street Clinic has both adult and paediatric facilities in these and many other areas of medicine which include the full range of critical care facilities.

The hospital has the country’s first CyberKnife™ robotic radiotherapy machine together with other state of the art radiotherapy machines and a range of the very latest diagnostic technology, much of it based in the new Harley Street Diagnostic Centre in Devonshire Street, London.

Aida Yousefi was for some years the Director of the HCA Cancer Network, the largest provider of cancer care outside the NHS. She has been Chief Operating Officer of The Harley Street Clinic for four years.

“For me this is a huge privilege to be taking over one of the country’s leading private tertiary hospitals,” she said. “We have an outstanding team of some of the country’s most senior specialists, nurses and technical staff and a history of ground breaking medicine both for adult patients and for children. No other private hospital can match this record of bringing new treatments to the UK, particularly in the area of paediatric cardiac medicine.”

“Our specialist medical teams are supported with technology which is the most extensive in the UK and the demand for our services continues to grow. I cannot imagine a more exciting period to take over the reins of such an outstanding world class institution,” she said.

The Harley Street Clinic and The Wellington Hospital are part of HCA International which owns the six leading private hospitals in London, 20 diagnostic and treatment centres in and around London and Manchester and which has four joint venture private patient units at leading NHS teaching hospitals in London and Manchester.
