Located in the tranquil suburbs of Northwest London, Harefield Hospital offers a full range of specialist heart and lung care services.

Our hospital’s peaceful leafy surrounding provides patients with a taste of the British countryside, ensuring their stay is as relaxing as possible.

Established in 1915, our hospital is world-renowned for treating some of the most complex patient cases, including the implantation of ventricular assist devices or ‘artificial hearts’ that are used in cases of extreme heart failure.

Harefield Hospital

Our hospital is also home to Europe’s first successful double heart and lung transplant and remains one of the top centres in the world for these transplant procedures.

Harefield Hospital has been ranked as one of the world’s best heart hospitals by US Newsweek, the American weekly news magazine.
