Children’s care across NW London has improved with more specialist children’s services available, a new report has found.
The report, published by the NHS in NW London, evaluated the changes to children’s services over the past year following the introduction of a new way of caring for children and the move from six hospitals with children’s wards to five. The changes included the closure of the children’s inpatient ward and children’s A&E at Ealing Hospital and addition of significant extra capacity to other major hospital sites across NW London.
