About our Trust
Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust provide services from two main hospitals, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital, and a number of clinics across London and the South-East.
We have over 6,000 members of staff that are PROUD to Care for nearly one million people. Both hospitals provide full clinical services, including full maternity, emergency and children’s, in addition to a range of community-based services across London, such as award-winning sexual health and HIV clinics.
We’re one of the safest and best performing Trusts in the country. We’re also one of the top trusts to work for – our staff say they’re engaged, motivated, and would recommend us as a place to work and receive treatment.
In 2020, The Trust was rated by the Care Quality Commission as ‘Outstanding’ in the well-led and use of resources domains and ‘Good’ in the safe, effective, caring and responsive domains. The Trust as a whole was ‘Good’, but the Chelsea site was ‘Outstanding’.
Our facilities are some of the best in the country. We have been investing around £10 million a year in our estate. We are currently spending c. £25 million on expanding our adult and neonatal critical care facilities at Chelsea and Westminster and redevelopment of our children’s unit at West Middlesex – in partnership with our charity, CW+ and generous donors.
