Overview

Newham University Hospital is part of Barts Health NHS Trust
The hospital is based in the heart of east London and serves one of Britain’s most diverse, fastest growing and youngest populations. We are an organisation which is firmly focused on meeting the needs and priorities of our local population and our services are regularly delivered in 40 languages. 

The hospital offers a range of local services including a 24 hour Emergency Department, an Urgent Care Centre, a modern purpose built outpatient facility and care of the elderly unit. The hospital also houses the local stroke and TIA centre.

The maternity facilities offer a much improved, high quality, modern and vibrant environment for mothers-to-be. Maternity is formed of many services – including 24 hour maternity assessment, induction of labour and inpatient antenatal care – together into one purpose-built section of the hospital, accommodating up to 6,500 births per year.

Our top priority is to ensure patient safety, deliver high quality care and assure patient satisfaction and we achieve this by listening to patients and letting their experiences lead improvements.
