A message from the CEO of Hillingdon Hospital Trust.

28 July 2020

Dear  Neighbour

I am delighted to be able to tell you that the Trust Board today approved the submission of the draft Strategic Outline Case to regulators. This is for the redevelopment of Hillingdon Hospital and sets out that a new hospital build on the Hillingdon Hospital site is identified as the preferred way forward.

To help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, Public Health England has recommended that residents who are self isolating double-bag their rubbish, including disposable cloths, tissues and any masks that may have been worn.

CCH (Coronavirus Community Help for Northwood, Northwood Hills, Oxhey, Pinner and Ruislip) is a locally based mutual aid group that helps anyone who needs a helping hand during the coronavirus pandemic.

A message from the Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust:

From Monday 30 March, the Minor Injuries Unit at Mount Vernon Hospital will be closed.
