North Middlesex University Hospital is one of London’s busiest acute hospitals, serving more than 350,000 people living in Enfield and Haringey and the surrounding areas, including Barnet and Waltham Forest.
Every day, on average, we see 500 patients in A&E; 15 babies are born in our maternity unit; about 450 inpatients are cared for on our wards; about 50 patients have major or minor surgery in one of our 10 operating theatres; and about 800 people attend our outpatients clinics.
We provide a full range of adult, elderly and children’s services across medical and surgical disciplines. Our specialist services include stroke, HIV/AIDS, cardiology (including heart failure care), haematology, diabetes, sleep studies, fertility and orthopaedics. Our sickle cell and thalassaemia department is nationally recognised as a leading centre for these diseases.
Why have we joined ‘Working with’?
“Offering excellent training and career development for staff is vital as we strive to offer ever-better patient care, yet my ambition goes beyond nurturing just professional needs. To care for our nursing staff holistically, they need to know they can access confidential help if they are struggling with personal or financial hardship. Joining the ‘Working with’ scheme gives us the comfort of knowing that our staff can receive emotional support, benefits advice, counselling information and one-off grants.”
