The Lister Hospital

The Lister HospitalThe Lister Hospital, overlooking the Thames in Chelsea, London, has established a reputation for providing high quality healthcare across a wide range of specialities supported by state-of-the-art diagnostic facilities.

The Hospital enjoys one of Chelsea's most prominent sites – next to the world-famous Chelsea Flower Show and overlooking the River Thames. Always a seat of medical excellence, The Lister Hospital became known due to its founder's pioneering work in developing modern-day antiseptics and latterly as an internationally-renowned centre for fertility treatments.

Lister Hospital Day Care Using modern minimally invasive (keyhole) techniques and equipment, recovery times are significantly improved. This means that even complex treatments can now be carried out without requiring an overnight stay.

The Lister's day care facilities provide treatment in comfortable surroundings. There is also a state of the art Endoscopy Suite with its own recovery area.

Lister Hospital Inpatient Care Individual patient rooms ensure each patients privacy and comfort, as well as minimising the risk of hospital acquired infections. Patient rooms are equipped with air conditioning, en-suite bathroom, TV, satellite channels, radio and direct dial telephone. There is a dedicated ward for orthopaedic patients, in which each room has a large purpose designed bathroom with a walk in shower.

To add to the comfort of your stay, the hospital team can arrange little extras such as daily newspapers, magazines and any special dietary requirements you require. And, of course, your visitors are welcome at any time, as soon as you are ready to receive them.

The Lister Hospital is situated in Chelsea on the north side of the River Thames. It is within easy access of Sloane Square and Victoria stations with good rail and road links to London's main airports.
