With surgeries, medical centres and hospitals in the area receiving numerous complaints and poor reviews, it raises the question as to how this has all came to be.

According to NHS data, Northwick Park Hospital, Harrow’s main hospital was deemed as the hospital with the longest waiting times in all of the UK last year. On top of that, this North West London borough receives the lowest amount of NHS funding out of every single borough in London.

Residents are fed up, hospital staff members are overworked and government officials are calling out for help.

Join Emily Srebotnjak as she tries to uncover the main causes for the decline of healthcare in Harrow, and if there’s a plan in place to help make an improvement for the future.
