Overview

Harefield Hospital

Harefield Hospital is one of the largest and most experienced centres in the world for heart and lung transplants. In 1983, a team of doctors led by the eminent Prof Sir Magdi Yacoub performed Britain’s first heart-lung transplant. More recently, we have improved work in the development of ‘artificial hearts’ (also known as left ventricular assist devices or LVADs). 

At our dedicated Heart Attack Centre we deal with heart attack emergencies from outer north-west London. Our arrival-to-treatment time of 23 minutes is the fastest in the country and amongst the fastest in Europe.

The hospital is a major centre for the treatment of lung cancer, chest cancer and other chest surgery.

We have more than 900 staff, five operating theatres and four catheter laboratories. The hospital has 149 beds including 44 dedicated to cardiac and thoracic surgery, 30 in the transplant unit, 42 for cardiology and 18 for adult intensive care.
