Emergency Department major improvement work 

06/01/2015 00:00 
Major improvement work is taking place at University College Hospital's Emergency Department, Beaumont Place, from January 2015

UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) is rebuilding the Emergency Department which when completed will further improve the experience and quality of care for patients and environment for staff. 

The Emergency Department is operating as normal throughout the rebuild, but there may be additional noise and potential disruption. In particular there will be changes to access to University College Hospital by the Beaumont Place entrance during this stage in the building work.

The next period of major changes to Beaumont Place runs from January 2015 into summer. 

Beaumont Place, behind University College Hospital off Grafton Way, will become the main access point for ambulances.

All other vehicles will access Beaumont Place from Tottenham Court Road, and may not be able to park at the usual drop off points.

Disabled vehicle users will have access to the underground car park in Maple House, the entrance to which is on Beaumont Place.

More information for patients is available on a leaflet here
