Use Ealing Hospital as normal is the message from the NHS to Ealing residents.
The NHS in Ealing is providing information to patients and staff to reassure them that Ealing Hospital is not closing and that they should use services as normal.
The information has been provided based on the NHS’s own research into local opinion about the future of the hospital, with many residents stating that they are concerned the hospital is closing.
Jacqueline Docherty DBE, Chief Executive of London North West Healthcare NHS Trust, said: “I want to reassure local residents that they can continue to use services at Ealing Hospital as normal.
“Over the next few years we will be looking at where we can best provide services, including GP practices, the community and hospital. New services will also be developed and some existing services will change.”
As part of the future plans for Ealing Hospital, local opinion is currently being sought from patients and residents in the borough on further development of older people’s care services. Ealing residents can share their views here.
Dr Mohini Parmar Chair of Ealing Clinical Commissioning Group: “We want to make sure we develop services that are right for the needs of our community and patients. It is really important to us, that as many people as possible can help shape local services.
