Always improving for you
08 December 2016
Our hospitals—Chelsea and Westminster and West Middlesex—aim to give patients and families the best clinical care and hospital experience possible. We do this by investing in our clinical staff, by making improvements to our processes and access to services, and by investing in improving the hospital environment to make sure that our buildings support our clinical staff to provide optimum care and experience. Charitable support from our community enables us to make many of these investments, which we would not be able to achieve without.
In 2016 we’ve invested in the following ways:
- By employing 950 extra doctors, nurses, midwives and other clinicians to care for our patients
- By developing brand new services like our cardiac catheter lab at the West Middlesex which means that patients can now go to their local hospital for diagnosis and treatment of common heart conditions
- By using technology to help our doctors and nurses monitor their patients in a real time way, allowing them to respond to changes immediately
- By investing in new clinical equipment and improving the environment for some of our key hospital services—like both A&E departments at our hospitals as well as a state of the art sexual health clinic, 10 Hammersmith Broadway.
We are committed to continuing to improve the hospital service we provide to all our patients. In 2017 we are launching a charity campaign with our community in order to raise £10 million to develop world-class adult and neonatal intensive care facilities at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital for critically ill adults and children, making us able to treat hundreds more critically ill patients every year. Look out for more information about our plans in spring 2017.
