The Surgeons Clinic

All patients at The Surgeon’s Clinic are cared for by leading consultants who work in teams and provide 24/7 cover at The Lister Hospital in Chelsea.

The Surgeon's Clinic offers complex surgery across several key areas within gastroenterology and urology. Surgical expertise during your operation is backed up by highly focused care before and after surgery.

The surgical expertise and care that we offer at The Surgeon's Clinic compares well to the best units, not only in the UK, but across the world. As in the NHS, we do not only need to aim for clinical excellence, we need to demonstrate we are achieving it consistently.

We use outcome measures that are tried and tested and similar to those used in NHS teaching hospitals, where most of our consultants also work.

We look at our outcomes, analyse them and learn from them. Regular discussions take place at audit meetings so that our high standards are maintained. Where we see a way to bring about improvements and implement new techniques and better clinical practice, we do so.

Mr Arjun Shankar is the Medical Director of The Surgeon's Clinic at The Lister Hospital. He is also a Consultant General, HPB and Sarcoma Surgeon at Royal Free Hospital, London and University College London NHS Foundation Trust. Previously he was the Divisional Clinical Director of Surgery at University College Hospital where he led on organisational restructure, governance and tertiary and acute services development.

Mr Arjun Shankar leads The Surgeon’s Clinic, its Acute Admissions Service, the Acute Care Unit and the Chelsea Medical Unit at The Lister Hospital. He works closely with many clinical and managerial colleagues and chairs the Clinic’s governance and audit committees.
