Question

The A & E Unit at Northwick Park Hospital is due to be operational soon and the transport links need to be improved. It is imperative that bus routes 204 and 395, which currently terminate at Sudbury and Harrow on the Hill are extended to North Wick Park Hospital. This has been vigorously pursued by local communities and stakeholders in Brent and Harrow. On behalf of the affected groups I seek your urgent intervention for the extension of these routes. Are you willing to help?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Northwick Park Hospital is served by five bus routes. 22 buses per hour take passengers to Harrow Bus Station, where interchange with the 395 is possible.  Passengers may take route 182 (seven buses per hour) and change at Sudbury to access route 204. There are no current plans to extend routes 204 or 395 but TfL keeps the network under constant review, including regular liaison with North West London Hospitals Trust.

 

As changes in health service provision are continuing, we will review the service pattern and capacity of bus routes serving hospitals throughout London.
