Our Gastro Team

Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust serves a population of around 700,000, from a wide range of social and ethnic groups, making it one of the largest acute hospital trusts in England. 

We have two main hospitals. Queen’s Hospital in Romford opened in 2006 and brought together the services previously run at Oldchurch and Harold Wood hospitals and complements King George Hospital which was built from new in 1993. We also serve clinics across outer north east London and have some services from Barking Hospital.

We operates two A&E departments at King George and Queen’s hospitals, and a full range of local hospital services. In addition, we offer a cancer centre, regional neuroscience centre and Hyper Acute Stroke Unit at Queen’s to provide specialist care.

We are committed to working closely with our partners in the community to place patients’ needs at the centre of our care.

BHRUT win top award

Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) is one of the CHKS 40 Top Hospitals for 2014, an accolade awarded to the 40 top performing CHKS client trusts. The 40 Top award is one of several awards that are part of the CHKS Top Hospitals programme.

As well as national awards for patient safety, quality of care and data quality, CHKS celebrates excellence among its clients across the UK. The 40 Top award is based on the evaluation of 22 key performance indicators covering safety, clinical effectiveness, health outcomes, efficiency, patient experience and quality of care.

Revised annually to take into account newly available performance information, this year’s indicators include:

  • Inpatient survey (overall care question)
  • Staff survey (overall job satisfaction)
  • Reported C-difficile rate for patients aged 65 and over
  • Percentage of elective (planned) inpatients admitted on day of procedure.

BHRUT Chief Executive Matthew Hopkins said: “I am delighted on behalf of my staff and volunteers, and our partners, to have picked up this award. Our patients are at the heart of everything we do and this award illustrates the tremendous amount of hard work that everyone does, which has always been recognised internally, but now externally as well.” 

He continued: “We have had challenges in the past but I am confident that, if we continue to build on some of our recent successes, we will be able to provide great care to every patient every day.” 

The CHKS Top Hospitals programme were attended by over 200 guests including leaders from across the healthcare sector including: NHS England, Monitor, the Trust Development Authority and acute trusts.
