Information about coronavirus (COVID-19)

Northwick Park Hospital is one of a group of hospitals chosen to care for coronavirus patients. We have experienced doctors, nurses and other staff in the country, capable of dealing with this illness. While this is a new coronavirus, our doctors have extensive experience of treating infectious diseases. We also have appropriate facilities designed to provide the best care for patients who have the virus whilst keeping everyone else being treated at Northwick Park Hospital safe.

If you have an appointment please attend as normal. The health and safety of our patients, visitors and staff is our absolute priority and we have robust procedures to prevent infection and onwards transmission.

The NHS in London and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

Wear a face covering to protect other patients, visitors, and our staff

Please wear a face covering when you come to the hospital. Your face covering must cover your mouth and nose.

Only take off your face covering if your clinician asks you to.

You can buy face coverings from various places online, or you can make one at home by following the government’s instructions.

Remember, face coverings are just one way to protect ourselves, our friends and family, other patients, and staff. They only work if everyone uses them.

Visiting our hospitals

To help us stop the spread of coronavirus, keep our hospitals running, we’re really sorry that we are not currently allowing visitors in our hospitals.

Outpatient appointments and elective surgery

We are making some temporary changes to our outpatient appointments and non-urgent planned surgery

Maternity services

We've made some additional changes to the way we'll care for you if you're pregnant or in labour.

Finding help

If you have particular questions about COVID-19, try our COVID-19 chat. It's based on guidance from NHS and the British Government, and can help you find answers to commonly asked questions.
