A free physio class for people recovering from falls is launching in St John’s Wood.

A pensioner with critical health problems was “bed blocked” for 11 days when he needed to be at a Hampstead dialysis unit – and, in a “catastrophic mix up”, nearly had a pacemaker fitted he didn’t need.

Patients at a Golders Green doctors’ surgery are angry at plans for its potential relocation to Finchley Memorial Hospital.

A Christmas appeal is raising cash to support “hundreds of homeless young people” in King’s Cross and the surrounding area over the festive period.

A 76-year-old minicab driver who had a heart attack at the wheel in King’s Cross embraced the man who saved his life yesterday.

Royal Free Hospital doctor Hossam Fayed was exhausted after finishing a 70 mile bike ride in aid of raising awareness of the potentially fatal condition pulmonary hypertension (PH).

Contaminated blood scandal victims have slammed the former director of the Royal Free Hospital’s haemophilia centre after unearthing a recording which sees her admit to non-consensual blood testing of patients and criticise campaigners.

Students from William Ellis School and LaSWAP sixth form centre were given the chance to highlight the health concerns that mattered to them in a video campaign produced with the help of Healthwatch Camden.
