Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health 


From May 2013 patients with sports injuries will be treated by UCLH clinical teams at the new Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health (ISEH) located on the second floor, 170 Tottenham Court Road.

The ISEH is a collaboration between leading health, academic and sports organisations – UCLH, UCL, British Olympic Association, English Institute of Sport and private hospital group HCA - which have come together to provide patients with the level of care and expertise only previously available to elite sports men and women.

  • Patient transport drop off and collection

    Patient transport drop off and collection at the UCH campus

    Patient Transport Services [PTS], London Ambulance Services [LAS] and private ambulances drop off and collect patients at the front of University College Hospital [UCH] on Euston Road.

    Access should only be from Euston Road and not from Hampstead or Tottenham Court Road. Private vehicles are not permitted to drop off or collect patients from this area nor are they allowed to cross the solid white line into the PTS area, passing across the solid white line in an attempt to turn into the ambulance bay from the west is a dangerous manoeuvre and is an offence prohibited under Regulations 10 and 26 of the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD) 2012.

    The TSRGD specifies traffic signs and their associated meanings, as well as the regulations associated with them, if breached, Transport for London [TfL] may issue a Penalty Charge Notice [PCN] to unauthorised vehicles.

    We are currently working with Transport for London to find out if we can make the current drop off and collection areas bigger and easier to access.

  • Private vehicles drop off and collection

    Private vehicles drop off and collection at the UCH campus

    Private vehicles can drop off and collect from Beaumont Place at the rear of UCH, parking will not be permitted, only drop off and collection. There are very limited drop off points for other car users. However, when the blue badge/disabled spaces are empty, they can be used by non-blue badge holders for drop off and collection to the University College Hospital. There are no other patient or visitor car parking facilities at UCLH.

    What is a dispensation notice?

    It is a Camden Council’s parking scheme for patients attending University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH). Areas in Camden, south of the Euston Road, are not covered by the national Blue Badge disabled parking scheme. If you want to park near, or in UCLH disabled parking bays, you will need to apply for a parking dispensation to use with your Blue Badge.

    How to apply for a parking dispensation

    On your first visit to University College Hospital or the University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre you need to park your car and bring the following to the reception desk:

    • Your Blue Badge
    • Your vehicle registration document (or Motability documents)
    • Proof of hospital attendance letter, showing appointment time and date, e.g. clinic appointment letter.

    Please note: Dispensations are only issued to patients with Blue Badges who are attending hospital appointments. They are not issued to carers, relatives, visitors or friends who are Blue Badge holders bringing a non-Blue Badge holder patient to an appointment.

    Or you can contact our PALS office for advice only on 020 3447 3042 or email pals@uclh.nhs.uk for more information.

    Please note:
    No other car parking is available.

  • Other information

  • Booking transport

  • Reclaiming transport fares

    If you are in receipt of benefits you may be entitled to reclaim transport fares when visiting the hospital for an inpatient or outpatient appointment. Please ask the clinic staff for an attendance form and take this to the appropriate hospital's Cashiers Office. Reimbursement can be made at the time of your visit if you can produce your benefit book.

  • Assisted travel for disabled passengers

    If you need assistance to plan or make a journey the National Rail Enquiries website provides information on the support available.

    The page provides a summary of the services available including a list of train companies and their access information.

    It is recommended that you book help 24 hours before you travel. This enables staff to give you as much information as possible before your travel; make alternative arrangements for you if the station is not step free or not staffed at the time you wish to travel; and ensure that there are enough staff for all the assistance requests at a station.

  • Congestion charge

    If you are driving to UCLH please be aware that most of our hospitals are within the congestion charge zone. Find out more about the congestion charge zone on the Transport for London website.
