WEST MIDDLESEX UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL NHS TRUST
West Middlesex University Hospital is a major
acute hospital in Isleworth, an attractive part of West London,
close to the Thames and within easy reach of Richmond, Heathrow
and central London.
West Middlesex is embarking on a £48 million
redevelopment scheduled for completion in 2003, to concentrate
the hospital around a state of the art new critical care centre.
West Middlesex has an impressive record: we

By working collaboratively with other healthcare
providers and with non-NHS organisations, we ensure that our services
are patient-focused, cost effective and rigorously monitored.
We also work hard to create a physical environment
conducive to good healthcare and welfare of staff.
Above all, West Middlesex is an extremely friendly
and supportive place to work.
