Harley Street in London is the UK's busiest area for private practice and is known around the world. Over the last century, London's Harley Street and neighbouring Wimpole Street have provided consulting rooms for some of the most famous doctors and surgeons. The Harley Street area of Marylebone was developed by Robert Harley in the early 1800's and the street was named after his son, Edward. Doctors began to move into the Harley Street area in the mid-nineteenth century.
Many of the doctors and surgeons working in the private clinics of Harley Street are consultants and specialists who also work in the NHS and are attached to the London teaching hospitals. There is an extensive range of medical, surgical and diagnostic services available to them within an area of less than a square mile. Several major private hospitals are situated in the area such as the Harley Street Clinic itself, and others such as the London Clinic and the King Edward VII’s Hospital Sister Agnes.
Harley Street cosmetic surgeons and plastic surgeons are popular within the entertainment world and many celebrities will visit a Harley Street medical doctor and dentist to keep them young.
