Navin's News: NHS North West London

NHS North West London Decision

Central Middlesex Hospital’s Accident and Emergency Department will close along with three other A&E units, it was announced yesterday by NHS North West London.

 Charing Cross, Hammersmith, Ealing and Central Middlesex are due to become downgraded to urgent care centres. Serious emergencies will be referred to Northwick Park, Hillingdon, West Middlesex and Chelsea and Westminster. 

This decision is a travesty. Northwick Park is already over-stretched, as are the other A&Es which are remaining open and the closures of neighbouring A&Es will increase the pressure on these services.

There is widespread opposition to the closure of Central Middlesex A&E but the opinion of residents has been completely ignored. With A&E admissions consistently rising by about 3% a year it is ridiculous to start closing major hospitals in places with dense populations such as Brent.

We will continue to fight to save our hospital and will pursue every available option, including referring this to the Independent Reconfiguration Panel and Judicial Review.
