North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust is a medium sized District General Hospital based in Edmonton in Enfield, North London. We serve a diverse multicultural population largely from the London boroughs of Enfield and Haringey. Many of our patients live in wards that are within the 5% most deprived in the UK and a large proportion of our patients were born abroad. This makes it both a fascinating and a challenging hospital to work in.We are primarily an emergency led hospital with more than 90% of our bed days being used for patients admitted via our emergency and ambulatory units. As well as offering everything you would expect from a major acute hospital we have a number of tertiary services treating patients with HIVand Sickle Cell Disease and a large cancer and radiotherapy service. We also run our local community Sexual Health Clinics.We are proud of our staff and want to ensure their training allows them to provide excellent clinical care. We are also a training unit for medical students from UCL and St George's University Grenada, and for nursing and midwifery students from Middlesex and City Universities. In our most recent CQC report (2019) we are still found to 'require improvement', but the report noted the achievements since the previous report, with a positive shift in culture and quality,notably in our Emergency and Maternity departments. Our Trust vision and objectives show our aspirations to develop towards 'Good' and 'Outstanding'
