Patients to travel to Hampstead as Wembley and Willesden cardiology to be closed

Full Story at GetWestLondon 14 January 2018

Cardiology services at Wembley and Willesden Health Centres will be completely shut from February 28. The move means Brent patients currently receiving treatment for heart-related illnesses will have to travel to the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead instead to continue being cared for by the same team.

Patients who wish to continue treatment with the same doctors will have to travel a significant distance as The Royal Free is 3.7 miles from Willesden Health Centre and 7.3 miles from Wembley Health Centre.

The decision to cut community cardiology services, run from Chaplin Road in Wembley and Robson Avenue in Willesden, was made by the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust.
