Northwood & Pinner Cottage Hospital

September 18, 2017

Northwood and Pinner Cottage Hospital was built as a war memorial and opened in 1920.

Progress at last.

As you may recall, I have been pressing the NHS for ages to redevelop this decaying site in a way that respects the past and retains community health facilities. I have been now assured that their preference is to move ahead with a redevelopment that will move the existing Northwood Health Centre into the main hospital site and upgrade it. The rest of the site would be new residential. The intention is to start discussions with Hillingdon Planning before the end of the year.

My own preference would be for the new residential accommodation to include an element of sheltered/extra care accommodation because I think we will need it. However, I would be very interested in a community view on this.
