Due to the state funeral, there will be no vehicle access to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital on Mon 19 Sep.

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital will be open in line with our normal bank holiday operations on Monday 19 September 2022.

We are prioritising urgent and emergency care at both our sites.
