I think this is a great location for a hospital, as its set around nice grounds albeit a bit hilly. I think they are planning to rebuild the hospital, but alas its old and the NHS is short on funds.
It's on the edge of North West London/Hertfordshire borders. Nice scenic area with clean air to recover in for inpatients. The rheumatology department is great with courteous, helpful staff inc doctors, nurses, radiographers and porters. If you have an orthapaedic problem; go here and don't waste time with other hospitals that deal with anything and everything. It is world class! Theres no emergency department so you will need a referral from your G.P
Free parking too, not like other London hospitals that like to rip off sick people. Sometimes difficult to find a space, but if you have a blue badge your chances are increased and you dont have to climb the hill. The best in their field. If you go by public transport, Its set quite a bit away from Stanmore Station on the Jubilee line, but the hospital operate a free bus service or you can take a cab.
I reccomend the cafe in the building opposite the main outpatients to have a drink and a bit to eat. Its very reasonably priced and there are tables. Additionally, you're supporting the hospital. The kiosk in the outpatients is more expensive and no tables.
Leads the UK in Orthopaedic treatment, surgery and physiotherapy. Rural setting - quite restful, once you've made it up the hill. Free car parking, though it sometimes takes 15 minutes to actually find a free spot that isn't staff reserved parking.
Four places to eat and drink for visitors, that I've found - Broccles, Spice Of Life (in the same building on the entrance road), the Friends Centre (near Outpatients) and Cafe Tazza (inside Outpatients). None spectacular, but all offer reasonable food and drink.
Outpatient staff were very friendly and helpful, and considerate. Nursing staff very considerate and, with the small experience that we've had of physio, skilled.
Good accessibility, as you'd expect. Take care when driving around, as there are quite a few wheelchairs zipping around (well, zipping down the hills and labouring up them).
