The North West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre (EOC) opened on the 4 December 2023.

This means that much of the routine, inpatient orthopaedic surgery for the population of north west London now takes place in a purpose-designed, centre of excellence at Central Middlesex Hospital. The centre is expected to perform around 4,000 procedures each year.

The decision to open a new elective orthopaedic centre follows a public consultation, plus further feedback, review and scrutiny. The Full Business Case is available to view on this site along with other relevant documents.

Ongoing public engagement is central to the success of the EOC. Our patient experience team is now collating early insights and feedback on accessibility, information, signage and patient experience.
