Hammersmith Hospital

paragraph image
Hammersmith Hospital is a major teaching hospital in West London and is part of the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, which is the largest Trust in the country. The establishment of the UK’s first Academic Health Science Centre (AHSC) brings together the delivery of healthcare services, teaching and research in a partnership whose purpose is to improve the health of its patients.

Hammersmith Hospital serves as a referral center for West London and is located in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. Confusingly the hospital is north of White City adjacent to Wormwood Scrubs and East Acton, rather than in Hammersmith.
Currently, HD disease patients and presymptomatic HD gene carriers can see the members of our team in two different clinics located in Hammersmith and Charing Cross Hospitals. Both clinics are led by Dr Paola Piccini, Consultant Neurologist.
The patients in order to make appointments they have to be referred by a GP.
 
The clinics provide:
•          Management of neurological symptoms
•          Management of psychiatric symptoms
•          Management of cognitive symptoms
•          About research and the opportunity to take part in research initiatives where appropriate

General Neurology Clinic at Hammersmith Hospital
