Park Royal business estate, on the border of two London boroughs, Brent and Ealing. CMH is a teaching hospital of Imperial College School of Medicine and part of the London North West Healthcare NHS Trust. This trust incorporates Northwick Park and St Mark’s Hospitals in Harrow, Central Middlesex Hospital in Park Royal and outreach services based close to the local communities in Wembley, Willesden, Stanmore and Harlesden. There are 214 beds on site in general medicine, general surgery, urology including orthopaedics, ENT, ophthalmology, oral surgery, obstetrics, gynaecology, cardiology and gastroenterology.
The hospital has particular experience in the care of patients with conditions aggravated by deprivation, specifically TB, diabetes and coronary heart disease, and is a leader in the research and treatment of sickle-cell disease. CMH has recently been rebuilt, using the proceeds of land sales and a PFI project.
Much of the original site has been sold for complementary mixed-use redevelopment, including residential accommodation. Keith Moon and Nicky Hopkins were born at the hospital. The hospital featured in the film 28 Days Later, with the protagonist Jim waking up in a deserted ACAD Centre. Central Middlesex Hospital, Park Royal, London, was completed in March 2007.
The BECaD project was developed in two phases. The first phase of the overall redevelopment of the site was completed in March 2006 with the opening of the BECaD building after a construction period of 28 months. This was followed by the demolition of the existing Victorian hospital buildings and subsequent landscaping of the southern sector of the site, completed during January 2007.
The Accident and Emergency unit was closed in September 2014 but the Brent Urgent Care Centre remains open 24 hours a day 365 days a year for treatment and advice for a range of minor illnesses and injuries that need urgent, immediate attention. BECaD delivers a non-institutional, therapeutic healthcare environment based on an innovative model of patient-focused care and the provision of flexible and adaptable accommodation.
Its design incorporates a palette of natural materials, a positive wayfinding strategy using internal materials, colours, landscaping, artworks, and signage in a co-ordinated manner to be reassuring and welcoming. From an urban design viewpoint, the new facility is conceived as a major catalyst in the regeneration of Park Royal. It is designed to maximise ease of access via a recognisable and welcoming main entrance atrium which faces southwards over a new elliptical civic space and bus station. The closest London Underground stations to the hospital are, North Acton and Hanger Lane which are on the Central line, Park Royal which is on the Piccadilly line and Willesden Junction and Harlesden which are both on the London Overground and Bakerloo line.
