About us

The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was established on 1st April 2011 when Monitor authorised the organisation as an NHS Foundation Trust. The Trust provides health services at two hospitals in North West London: Hillingdon and Mount Vernon. Hillingdon Hospital is the only acute hospital in the London Borough of Hillingdon and offers a wide range of services including accident and emergency, inpatient care, day surgery, outpatient clinics and maternity services.

The Trust’s services at Mount Vernon Hospital include routine day surgery at a modern treatment centre, a minor injuries unit, and outpatient clinics.

Purpose, activities and history of the Trust

The Trust provides clinical services to over half a million patients a year, including over 97,000 Emergency Department attendances. As an NHS Foundation Trust, the Trust has a 25-strong Council of Governors and over 6,300 public members. It employs over 3,500 staff making it one of Hillingdon’s largest employers.

Improving patient facilities

Our A&E redesign project was completed in 2018. A budget of £1.9 million was spent on building works and £200k for preparation works for the next phases scheduled for 2019/20. Work to the female day-care area was undertaken to include a separate male area, costing £400k. We spent £230k to complete final works for the CT scanner. Funding was received for a new ambulatory care area with 6 chairs, which was completed in January 2019.

Caring for our staff

55% of staff that took part in the NHS national survey said they ‘would recommend the Trust as a place to work’. The staff survey identified 10 key areas and we were at or above average in three areas (appraisals, quality of care and safe environment) and only 1% lower than average in another three areas.

The Trust is entering year three of its People Strategy which has seen improvement in learning and development and a growing range of course portfolios involving coaching and wellbeing.

Friends and Family Test

For the year to March 2019, we received 38,738 responses to the Friends and Family Test with 96.3% of patients recommending our services to their friends and family.
