Grandeur and Opulence
Harley Street was built in the Eighteenth Century, illustrating the opulence and grandeur of Georgian architecture, with its large town houses, sash windows and stately marble entrances.
Hub of Medical Excellence
The luxuriousness of the buildings’ design, the central location, and the extremely good transport links, soon attracted medical professionals and doctors to the area, who then began to treat patients from their homes. By 1914, there were around 200 doctors practicing down the street. The blue plaques which pepper the walls of Harley Street, including the likes of Sir Henry Thompson, Dr Edward Bach and Florence Nightingale, serve as a reminder of its rich and brilliant history.
Nowadays, Harley Street is renowned globally for being a hub of medical excellence and innovation. PHI Clinic is no exception, offering the widest range of treatments in the UK, if not Europe, and housing the most diverse, knowledgeable and experienced clinical team.
