UCLH to invest in new world leading centre 

10/07/2015 00:00 
A new centre for the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the ear, nose, throat and mouth including dental, hearing, speech and balance services will be built on Huntley Street, WC1E.
 
The UCLH Board confirmed its intention to invest in this world-leading centre on 8 July 2015.

Currently, UCLH provides ear, nose, throat and dental services from at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital (RNTNEH) and the Eastman Dental Hospital (EDH), as well as at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and University College Hospital.

When the centre opens in 2018, these services will move to the new site, offering multidisciplinary care under one roof in a modern environment.

Sir Robert Naylor, chief executive of UCLH said: “Investing in this new clinical facility is a great opportunity. It involves two world renowned hospitals coming together under one roof to provide the best possible care for patients. The cost of this new development will be funded from the subsequent sale of the RNTNEH and EDH.”

Conditional planning permission for the new building was granted by London Borough of Camden’s Development Control Committee in June 2015.

The building will be situated right at the heart of the University College Hospital campus. It will deliver services from two floors below ground, and five above, with the access from both Huntley Street and Shropshire Place.
