Welcome to Homerton University Hospital
Known for:
Dermatology
Orthopaedic Surgery
Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust provides general and specialist hospital services and community health services in Hackney and the City. Last year the hospital admitted 63,000 patients, saw over 236,000 outpatients and delivered over 5,500 babies. Every day the A&E team saw an average of 325 patients and became the first such team in the country to be rated ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission.

Based in the London Borough of Hackney, we provide general health services at the hospital and in the community with staff working out of 75 different sites. The hospital has almost 500 beds spread across 11 wards, a 9-bed intensive care unit and maternity, paediatric and neonatal wards.

We have three day-surgery theatres and six main operating theatres for all types of general surgery, trauma and orthopaedics, gynaecology, maxio-facial, urology, ENT, obesity, bariatric and obstetrics. We also have a surgical treatment room within the main theatres complex.

We offer a range of specialist care in obstetrics and neonatology, fetal medicine, fertility, HIV and sexual health, asthma and allergies, keyhole and bariatric surgery and neuro-rehabilitation across east London and beyond.

As a Foundation Trust, we are accountable to local people who can become members and governors. We have a duty to consult and involve a Board of Governors drawn from patients, staff, membership and partner organisations in our strategic planning.

We have earned a reputation for the quality of training offered and are recognised as one of the top recruiters to high-quality research studies in the UK with a particular interest in neonatal, sexual health and respiratory medicine. We are also recognised as innovators in embracing methods and systems that promise better and safer patient care.

All of these factors figured when the Chief Inspector of Hospitals Sir Mike Richards said: “More trusts need to be like Homerton”.

We now employ over 3500 staff, most of whom grew up in Hackney, most of whom live in the neighbourhood, many of whom followed their mothers and fathers into the hospital, a number of whom work alongside more than one family member, some of whom were born here and all of whom believe they belong to something of great value.

I was admitted to through A and E with a nasty infection of the tooth and gum which had caused my Jaw to lock. As The livey Mr Cheng of Max Fax was away he had arranged for me to be seen by the very kind and excellent Dr Karim Kassam. The care Mr Kassam and his team is excellent.I was kept up to date with when my surgery was and the care of the Nurses and HCAs on ACU and Lamb ward was outstanding. Having had repeatedly bad experiences at UCH this hospital and the care given was that akin to what I received in GOSH and it's then Sr hospital QEB as a child.I must also pay special Tribute to the Anaesthetist in Theatre 5 on the day of surgery and his very able team. I had to be intubated before being put to sleep owing to my condition. But the Anaesthetist in charge came and saw me before to explain what would happen. Intubation while awake is not a pleasant experience even if necessary. However this lovey Anaesthetist and his caring team ensured my discomfort was minimal. I was further surprised to be visited both in recovery by this Anaesthetist and a memory of his team on the ward the next day. The medicines were given out promptly and with great care and best of all I was never left to suffer excess pain your Drs and nurses were on the ball at all times. Hopefully, I will not need further medical intervention in the future but if I did I would always want to be under the care of Homerton Hospital. Thank you one and all and God Bless you all.
