The Hillingdon Hospital in west London has been forced to close itself off to emergency admissions – while it has 70 staff self-isolating. The hospital, in Boris Johnson’s constituency of Uxbridge and South Ruislip , was forced to make the decision after a spike in coronavirus cases.

A spokesman for Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said: “An outbreak of COVID-19 was declared on Friday, July 3, 2020.

“As of Tuesday, July 7, 70 members of staff are now isolating, a number of whom have tested positive for COVID-19.

“As a result, the trust has taken the precautionary decision to close Hillingdon Hospital to emergency ambulances and emergency admissions.

“The trust is managing the outbreak in line with Public Health England guidance.”
