Bringing care closer to home for thousands in in North West London

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has received final approval for the construction of a new ‘state-of-the-art’ Ambulatory Diagnostic Centre (ADC) at West Middlesex University Hospital, ‘bringing care closer to home for thousands’, as it prepares for construction this spring.

This comes after the Final Business Case was approved by the North West London Acute Provider Collaborative Board in Common. Construction work is due to start soon, and aims to complete by summer 2026. The Trust says the new five-storey facility will ‘provide vital diagnostic and treatment services’ in cancer, renal, and imaging for local residents in Hounslow, Richmond, and Ealing. It aims to reduce health inequalities, improve patient outcomes and provide care closer to home – freeing up space in the main hospital for inpatient care.

The Trust explains that cancer and renal disease account for one of the largest health impacts for the local population. The ADC will double capacity for these services. The new £80 million investment is the largest capital project the Trust has ever run, and includes a £16.5 m capital grant from NHS England. The centre will support outpatient care, and offer day services for patients, opening approximately 12 hours per day, 6 days a week.

The Trust’s official charity, CW+, is seeking to raise £1.5 m in donations to support the new ‘landmark facility’. Fundraising efforts will go towards enhancing the patient experience, through improvements to furniture, green spaces, and a ‘more dynamic’ visual environment.

The new development is designed to be an all-electric building, and supports the Trust’s commitment to the sustainable development of new-builds and facilities.

The Trust said: “The ADC will include a modern education facility, which will improve the skills and knowledge of staff. The development will help future-proof recruitment and retention of staff within the local community.”
