STRUCTURE: West Middlesex University Hospital Trust is due to announce its merger partner on Tuesday.
The £149m-turnover district general hospital has narrowed bidders down to Imperial College Healthcare Trust and Chelsea and Westminster Foundation Trust.
An earlier overture from Hillingdon Hospitals Foundation Trust was not taken forward.
One senior figure involved in the process said the Imperial bid made more sense in terms of patient flows but Chelsea and Westminster’s performance was better.
