Children and young people's services  

Visit our homepage for children and young patients

We provide a full range of specialist and general services for children and young people. Our services cover all age ranges but we particularly specialise in caring for teenagers. We have the largest teenage unit in the country offering outstanding facilities and a team of specially trained staff.

For many of our services for younger patients we work very closely with our neighbours, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.

Cancer services
We are a designated cancer hospital (called a primary treatment centre) for a large number of children and young people diagnosed with a number of different cancers and blood disorders. We have the largest Teenage Cancer Trust unit in the country. We operate as a unified cancer centre together with Great Ormond Street and collectively form the largest children and young people oncology centre in Europe.

General services
We provide emergency care via our accident & emergency department for all ages. We also provide a full range of non-urgent general services, which include some specialist clinics such as asthma, allergy and epilepsy.


Specialist services

We have a number of specialist services for children and young people, including:


Facilities

The facilities for children and young people are provided at University College Hospital  (UCH) in central London. This outstanding facility, built five years ago, offers a modern, bright environment equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. The children and young people’s wards are located on the 11th and 12th floors of the hospital tower offering spectacular views of central London. Younger children (which we classify up to 12 years of age) stay on the 11th floor. Young people (13 years to 19 years of age) stay on the 12th floor.

Our staff

Our service is staffed by a team of specially trained health professionals with a wealth of experience of caring for children and young people.

The clinical service is complemented by exceptional research carried out by our staff in collaboration with the University (UCL) and Institute of Child Health. Our teams are at the cutting edge of translating research into practice.
