This week Northwick Park Hospital hit the headlines again following the inquest of Ana Maria Denzo, who died after giving birth at the maternity unit in Watford Road in 2005.
Due to the hospital's failure to offer Mrs Denzo the best possible care, her daughter will now never know her mother. Expectant mums hoped the nightmare would have ended with the lifting of special measures and a £19million refurbishment.
But three women died in the 10 month period up to March this year - bringing the total to 13 since 2002.
Despite assurances that these latest deaths are unfortunate coincidences, North West London Hospital NHS Trust must begin to regain public trust.
The only way to do this is to hold an independent inquiry.
Farewell RAF Bentley Priory
THE FINAL chapter in the remarkable story of RAF Bentley Priory was written at its closure ceremony, when the station's standard was lowered for the final time.
This was a seminal moment in the borough's history and one witnessed by as many residents as dignitaries and RAF servicemen past and present.
The reason so many people were there to bid farewell to the base is because of its unique history and what it represents - the self-sacrifice of so many young airman in the desperate defence of the nation during the Battle of Britain in particular.
Because of the determination of the Battle of Britain Fighter Association, the building will become a permanent museum, a reminder of the heroism of that time.
Funds are still needed but those behind the museum are confident they will be found.
The Observer will continue to support Bentley Priory, the embodiment of the nation's 'finest hour'.
