On 30 June 2016 planned changes were made to children’s services at Ealing Hospital designed to improve care across North West London. As a result of the changes A&E services are no longer available for children at Ealing Hospital.  Urgent Care Services 24/7 continue to be provided at Ealing Hospital for children and adults.

Further information on these changes can be found in this leaflet.

Please note: there is no A&E at Central Middlesex Hospital, this has closed. 

You should be aware that our emergency departments are extremely busy, so please consider whether your family doctor can help you before making your journey.

Other options for advice and treatment

NHS 111 provides information and advice from specially trained nurses who can advise you whether you need to come into hospital or whether to see your family doctor. Call 111, free of charge, to find the right treatment. You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a 999 emergency or a life-threatening situation.

If you contact your GP surgery outside of their normal working hours, you will be redirected to an out-of-hours service.
