Director and CQC Registered Manager

View profile

Isabelle qualified as a dental surgeon at the Faculte de Chirurgie Dentaire in Strasbourg, France in 1985 and completed a Doctorate with Distinction in 1986 before moving to the UK. She ran her own private practice in Sloane Street, London SW1 from 1990 to 2008, where she learnt first-hand about the needs of both clinicians and patients.

Everything she did was designed to create a safe, calm and reassuring environment where all patients are treated with respect.

"I have brought this ethos to The Medical Chambers Kensington and La Clinique Française, where I am Co-Founder, Director and Care Quality Commission Registered Manager. I am continually driven to strive for excellence and stop at nothing less."

Isabelle was also a founding member and Chairperson of Medecine Francaise Londres, an organisation of French speaking doctors in London, and over the years has established a considerable network of French and international private medical practitioners in London.

Carley joined The Medical Chambers Kensington in 2015. She started as a part-time receptionist whilst studying for a degree in International Politics. After graduating, Carley chose to pursue a career in healthcare and progressed to become Clinic Manager. She now manages all day-to-day operations and ensures that the clinic runs smoothly.

As of October 2021, she is enrolled on the Government led Help to Grow Business Management programme focussed on helping small businesses acquire new skills and, in our case, improve the patient experience.

“Everything we do here is aimed at delivering the best possible service to our patients and doctors. My team and I continually train to improve and create a welcoming, calm environment with effortless processes. A visit to a medical clinic is not typically something to look forward to, so if we can help our patients feel calm and at ease then we have achieved exactly what we have set out to do here.”
