About our hospitals
Northwick Park Hospital is a major acute (general) hospital. It is one of only eight hospitals in the capital to provide a ‘hyper acute’ stroke unit offering faster treatment to patients who suffer a stroke, including ‘clot-busting’ drugs 24/7. It has a £19m maternity department, including a midwife-led birth unit, and a major children's department, Jack's Place. Its busy A&E department has an Urgent Care Centre next to it so that patients who need to be seen quickly, but who do not have life-threatening illnesses or accidents, can be seen, treated and sent home. It has a newly £2.6m refurbished radiology department which is home to some of the most high-tech imaging equipment available.
Central Middlesex Hospital in Park Royal is one of London's most modern – and stylish hospitals. It was formally opened in 2008 as a completely new £85 million hospital treating local people with a range of conditions. The hospital has an A&E department and an Urgent Care Centre which is run by Care UK, next to A&E, so that patients who need to be seen quickly, but who do not have life-threatening illnesses or accidents, can be seen, treated and sent home. The hospital carries out a wide range of routine operations for local people, most as ‘day case’ procedures so that they can return home the same day.
St Mark’s Hospital is the country’s leading hospital for colorectal diseases (conditions of the bowel and intestine). It has an international reputation for its pioneering and innovative treatments and trailblazing surgical techniques. The hospital was also the first centre in London to open for bowel screening and the programme has now been extended to people up to the age of 75 from 60-69.
