Improving healthcare in Harrow East

Bob will help Northwick Park Hospital obtain the funds required to improve the hospital as well as supporting the rebuilding of Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. 

The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) in Stanmore has been fighting for much needed funding to renovate its outdated building stock. Bob has been pressing for their case at every level while the review process goes via the NHS Trust Development Authority. Bob has also been working closely with our other main medical facility, Northwick Park Hospital, and assisted in its successful campaign to secure £21 million for a brand new state of the art A&E department.
