Refurbishment of the Heart Hospital
The Heart Hospital is being refurbished and will reopen at the beginning of the summer to provide thoracic surgery and urology services.

Thoracic surgery, which has always been based at the Heart Hospital, will continue to be provided from the site, after moving out to The London Clinic for a period of eight weeks (6 May to 28 June 2015). The urology service move will happen in phases and complete in September 2015. Referral pathways for thoracic surgery and urology are not changing.

Given the change in the services being provided from the Heart Hospital, we have consulted staff and patients and will change the name of the hospital. Following the refurbishment, it will be called University College Hospital at Westmoreland Street.

Cancer services update
The service transfers related to the London Cancer proposals which will see UCLH as a specialist hub for haematology-oncology, head and neck, oesophago-gastric, bladder and prostate cancers will take place at the end of 2015.

We are working to increase capacity in preparation for the transfer by reorganising services within University College Hospital, including moving urology services to our site at Westmoreland Street (the former Heart Hospital). Brain cancer will transfer in autumn 2016.

Staff are working together with commissioners to ensure the provision of safe, effective care for cancer patients, and keeping GPs and patients informed is a key priority.
