HistoryEdit

 
The old hospital, now largely demolished

The hospital was established as an infirmary for sick paupers at the Willesden Workhouse in 1903.[1] Extensions were built in 1908, 1911 and 1914.[1] The facility became the Willesden Institution in 1914, the Park Royal Hospital in 1921 and the Central Middlesex County Hospital in 1931.[1]

The hospital was badly damaged by enemy bombing during the Second World War.[1] After the hospital joined the National Health Service in 1948, major additions included a maternity unit opened in 1966 and Ambulatory Care and Diagnostic Centre for out-patients opened in 1999.[1]

Extensive new facilities were procured under a Private Finance Initiative contract in 2003.[2] Under this scheme, while the Ambulatory Care and Diagnostic Centre built only a few years earlier was retained, most of the rest of the buildings on the site were demolished and a new Brent Emergency Care and Diagnostic Centre was created.[2] The works, which were designed by HLM Architects and Avanti Architects and carried out by Bouygues at a cost of £60 million, opened in 2006.[2]
