Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the top ranked and top performing hospital trusts in the UK.

We employ more than 6,000 staff over our two main hospital sites, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital, and across 12 community-based clinics within North West London.


We pride ourselves on providing outstanding care to a community of over 1.5 million people.

Both hospitals have major A&E departments, treating over 300,000 patients each year.  The Trust is the second largest maternity service in England, delivering over 11,000 babies every year.  Our specialist care includes the world-renowned burns service, which is the leading centre in London and the South East, we run Chelsea Children’s Hospital with paediatric inpatient and outpatient services, and our specialist HIV and award winning sexual health care services.

In partnership with CW+ our hospital charity we build and enhance clinical facilities to create an outstanding care environment for our patients and for our staff.  We are growing our existing portfolio of innovation projects and our reputation in this field, to become a national leader for innovation within the NHS.

We aspire to provide locally-based and accessible services enhanced by world-class clinical expertise. Our excellent financial and operational performance is a source of great pride to us. It is nationally recognised and sees us simultaneously achieving our financial plan while continuing to be one of the best performers against the national access standards for accident and emergency (A&E), referral to treatment (RTT) and cancer.

Through the Health and Care Partnership (HCP) in both North West and South West London we work as a wider health system to drive improvements to care, and to deliver integrated care in Hammersmith and Fulham, Hounslow and West London and beyond.
