West Middlesex University Hospital to become a Major Hospital

19 February 2013

We are delighted with today’s announcement that West Middlesex University Hospital is set to become a Major Hospital, under NHS North West London’s Shaping a Healthier Future programme.

We are delighted with today’s announcement that West Middlesex University Hospital is set to become a Major Hospital, under NHS North West London’s Shaping a Healthier Future programme.

The aim of this programme is to improve NHS services for the two million people who live in North West London; ensuring people get the best care, in the right setting 24/7.

A consultation took place last year and this morning the Joint Committee of Primary Care Trusts met to consider the final recommendations put forward by NHS NW London. They have announced that our hospital will be designated a Major Hospital, which is great news for our local community.

As a Major Hospital we can look forward to significant investments in our facilities and staffing, expanding a number of our services including accident and emergency and our award winning maternity service.

This is good news for our long term future and strengthens our position regarding becoming a Foundation Trust. In order to support us with this we are currently in the process of deciding which trust we will partner with in the future and expect to announce our decision on this at the end of this month.

On behalf of the Board, we would both like to thank everyone who has helped us achieve this milestone. We can now look forward to a bright future, providing a first class hospital for our community.
