From Monday 30th October there will be deep excavation work taking place in the car park immediately outside the Outpatients Department (OPD) – area marked 1 on the map. Therefore it will not be available for patients or staff to park vehicles in this area for the duration of the works. The only access allowed to the car park is for drop off and pick up only – cars dropping off patients, ambulances, courtesy vehicle, patient buggies. There will be no spaces available for patient or staff vehicles to be parked until the work is finished.
A ground-breaking devolution deal that will lead to improvements in health and care in London has been signed by the Mayor of London, Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt, London Councils and NHS, Public Health and wider health and care leaders.
The landmark agreement gives the Mayor, London Councils and health leaders more control over health and care in the capital, leading to more joined-up services for Londoners. The deal is the largest of its kind in England with over 100 organisations involved in shaping it over the past couple of years.
Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT), a programme designed to improve clinical quality and efficiency within the NHS by reducing unwarranted variations, has appointed six more leading clinicians to join its national review of 35 medical and surgical specialties.
