The £28 million project at Finchley Memorial has developed an award winning, purpose built hospital that aims to treat more people effectively in an environment which is modern and patient focused.

David Riddle, Vice-Chair of NHS North Central London said: “The hospital is a landmark building that will provide high quality health care services for the community of Finchley and surrounding areas for many years to come."

A variety of services have moved into the new building including rehabilitation, inpatient beds, a walk-in centre, outpatients departments, therapies, diagnostics, podiatry, audiology, cardiology, and musculoskeletal services.  Talks are also taking place on other services such as GP surgeries, pharmacy, diabetic retinopathy, pathology and infusion suite, moving into the new building over the coming weeks. 

Dr Sue Sumners, GP and Chair of the Shadow Barnet Clinical Commissioning Group said “This is an exciting time for patients in Barnet. The new Finchley Memorial Hospital is a fantastic purpose built building with up to date healthcare and new local services for local people.  Barnet patients have access to a full range of diagnostic and therapy services, as well as excellent rehabilitation care within their new community hospital.
