Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL has reviewed bus services to London's general hospitals, considering stakeholder requests on how links to hospitals could be improved.  A summary of the report can be found online at: http://content.tfl.gov.uk/csopp-20170713-part-1-item06-review-of-bus-services-to-londons-hospitals.pdf

The report categorises potential actions for hospitals by priority, with direct bus links from North Middlesex Hospital to Winchmore Hill and Enfield included in the top priority group. Options being considered include extending route W10 from Enfield Town to North Middlesex Hospital via Winchmore Hill through areas currently unserved by the bus network.

As part of TfL's ongoing review of bus network operation, TfL will consider how resources can best be allocated across the network including to meet the demands identified in this review. TfL will provide a full update on the status of the various hospital bus route priorities in due course.
