Help Brent Council plan the borough’s future

Brent residents are being asked for their views on how local public services should evolve and what they can do to improve the borough given the continuing squeeze on budgets.

The borough plan 2015/19 consultation opens today (September 16) and invites residents to help shape the future of the borough in the context of significantly reduced budgets for local public services.

A&Es at Central Middlesex and Hammersmith Hospitals now closed

The A&E departments at Central Middlesex Hospital and Hammersmith Hospital are now closed. 

Urgent Care Centres at both sites are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for patients with minor illnesses and injuries that are urgent but not life-threatening. 

Urgent care centres (UCCs) are run by experienced GPs and nurses for patients who cannot wait for a GP appointment, but do not need the emergency treatment provided at an A&E. You do not need an appointment.

Planning Brent’s future healthcare services

Patients, carers and residents are being urged to help plan the health services that need to be provided in Brent in 2015/16.

NHS Brent Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which is responsible for planning and designing many health services in the borough, are inviting residents to attend the next health partners forum at the Bridge Park Community Leisure Centre in Brentfield on Wednesday, 3 September from 6-8pm.
