Answered By: 
The Mayor

NHS colleagues advise me that there are no plans to close Northwick Park hospital or downgrade Central Middlesex. The North West London NHS Hospitals Trust is part-way through two significant change programmes working towards new models of care and service delivery, and I understand these have implications for both Northwick Park and Central Middlesex.I would be concerned if these changes were likely to have a negative impact on local people's access to high quality services in North West London. However, I am not directly responsible for NHS service delivery or decisions about models of care, other than in relation to formal planning applications
