AN £11m redevelopment is planned for Northwood and Pinner Cottage Hospital, which serves 20,000 patients.

Two GP practices, Carepoint and Acre, will be relocated into the refurbished building from nearby Northwood Health Centre.

New mental health services will be located there, while patient access points will also be improved, in addition to increased parking.

Northwood Health Centre will be sold to generate the capital for parts of the project.

In the planning permission, 70 new homes will be built, in accordance with Hillingdon Council’s local plan. Work is expected to start this summer.

The NHS has also committed to preserving the war memorial that commemorates soldiers who served during two World Wars.

One hundred new trees will be planted and 15 electric vehicle charging points installed.

Dr Manish Patel, Practice Manager at Carepoint, said: “This relocation is a welcome opportunity for us to enhance patient care and expand the services we deliver.”
