Emergency Department 

Our children and young people’s emergency department is temporarily closed as part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Children and young people needing care for an accident or emergency should go to the Whittington Hospital, Emergency Department, Magdala Avenue, London N19 5NF.

The UCLH Emergency Department remains open for adults.

It provides ready access to emergency nursing and medical care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The entrance is on Gower Street, opposite Euston Square Tube Station.

The department provides clinical services to treat the range of problems with which patients present as an emergency or urgently, from life-threatening conditions to minor injury and illness, in all age groups from babies to the elderly.

The clinical team in the Emergency Department, led by specialists in emergency medicine and nursing, seeks to provide patients with the best clinical care as quickly as possible, as well as to allay the distress and anxiety which is often associated with accidents and emergencies. The Trust aims to treat and admit or discharge all patients within 4 hours, except when patients’ clinical needs dictate that the patient continue to receive treatment in the Emergency Department for longer.

We aim to keep patients fully informed about their investigations and treatment, and in doing so facilitating patient involvement in decisions about their treatment. The department undertakes continuous self-monitoring to ensure that patients are both treated promptly and made as comfortable as possible during their stay.
