Geography[edit]

In popular culture[edit]

  • Northwick Park is the setting for the Channel 4 situation comedy "Green Wing"[1]. Most of the filming for the series was carried out in the working hospital rather than on sound stages. This means that the series has a far more authentic feel than many other programmes set in hospitals. Additionally a number of ordinary, unsuspecting members of the public can be spotted in the background clearly unaware of the filming that is going on.
  • Northwick Park Hospital also featured as the outdoor location for the hospital in which Sybil Fawlty was admitted for an ingrowing toenail in the Fawlty Towers episode "The Germans".
