  • COVID-19 information for patients

    Many of the patients we treat at the UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre are at higher risk from Covid-19. For this reason we are severely restricting access to the building including a policy of no visitors except in exceptional circumstances. Everyone entering the building will be screened before entry and may not be admitted.

    If you are due to visit the Cancer Centre and develop symptoms of Coronavirus (Covid-19) please contact your clinical team as soon as possible, prior to attending the Cancer Centre, so that we can confirm if it is still appropriate for your visit to go ahead.

  • 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. A dispensation notice is required for parking in and around the main UCH site, EGAH and UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre sites only. Dispensation notices are not required for: NHNN/Queens Square, RNTNEH, RLHIM, UCHWMS and EDH.

    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 number
    • Proof of hospital attendance letter, showing appointment time and date, e.g. clinic appointment letter.

    Please note: Dispensations are only issued to UCLH patients with Blue Badges who are attending hospital outpatient appointments, day cases and the Emergency Department. 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. Dispensation notices are not issued to inpatients, overnight parking is not permitted.

    If you have a question about disabled parking, or would like to apply for a dispensation notice in advance or would like to speak with a member of staff please email your query to or telephone: 020 344 79922.

    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 and ultra low emissions zones
