Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust
Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust is a large provider of acute services, serving a population of over 750,000 in outer North East London. The trust operates from two sites; Queen’s Hospital and King George Hospital.
Queens Hospital is the trust’s main acute hospital and opened as a private finance initiative (PFI) in 2006, bringing together the services previously run at Oldchurch and Harold Wood Hospitals. It is the main hospital for people living in Havering, Dagenham and Brentwood. The hospital has over 900 beds, including a hyper acute stroke unit (HASU). The Emergency Department (ED) treats over 150,000 walk-in and ambulance emergencies each year.
The Royal College of Emergency Medicine is calling for short-term ED capacity to be increased to stop preventable patient deaths from crowding & government needs to restore bed capacity and publish a long-term workforce plan https://t.co/UIPYvjDen2 pic.twitter.com/jlZszuaOAN— HEFMA (@HEFMAUK) December 1, 2021
