Chelsea and Westminster Hospital opened in 1993. It took over the functions of five predecessor hospitals:
- St Mary Abbots Hospital, Kensington
- St Stephen's Hospital, Chelsea
- West London Hospital, Hammersmith
- Westminster Hospital
- Westminster Children's Hospital
We became a Foundation Trust in October 2006 which has made the Trust more accountable to patients, the public and our staff.
The Board of Directors has 6 Non-Executive Directors (including the Chairman) and 5 Executive Directors (including the Chief Executive).
The Council of Governors includes elected representatives of patients, members of the public and hospital staff, as well as nominated representatives of key local stakeholder organisations. The Council works with the Board of Directors as a ‘critical friend’, helping to shape the Trust’s future.
