Overview

Northwick Park Hopsital

Northwick Park is a major acute (general) hospital in north west London, managed by The North West London Hospitals NHS Trust, whose services to patients were judged to be ‘excellent’ by the national regulator, the Care Quality Commission, in 2009.

In 2010 Northwick Park will open its ‘hyper acute’ stroke unit, one of just eight in the capital designed to offer very fast treatment to patients who suffer a stroke, including ‘clot-busting’ drugs to patients on a 24 hour basis. It also 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. Its recently refurbished radiology department is home to state of the art high-tech imaging equipment.
