About us

The Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is the main hospital for the London borough of Hackney and is attached to the St. Bartholomew's and the Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry (part of University of London).

The hospital has approximately 500 beds at present.

The hospital provides a full range of acute services for the local populations and a range of specialist services including perinatal (level 3) NICU and high risk obstetrics, bariatric and laparoscopic surgery, stroke and neuro-rehabilitation.

The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) has 12 beds which can all provide Level 3 support, although Level 2 (HDU) patients are also cared for there. The intensive care team operate a closed unit policy, and provide input into all other areas of the hospital, particularly the Emergency Department.

The case mix is varied and covers complex medical, post surgical and maternal critical care. Due to the diverse population there is a wide spectrum of disease process and pathology.
