Redeveloping the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery 

The NHNN marked the completion of its current four-year programme to modernise and redevelop in July 2018. Thank you to all of our patients and staff for their patience while the work took place.

The final phases of the redevelopment include a new Medical Intensive Therapy Unit and neuro-medical high dependency beds and two rebuilt operating theatres.

The £23 million redevelopment, which was supported by donations from the National Brain Appeal, included the following:

• Building two new operating theatres
• Rebuilding the four existing operating theatres
• Creating the pain management Centre at Cleveland St
• Integrating neuro-otology with audio-vestibular medicine at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear hospital, prior to the opening of the new ENT and Dental Hospital in Huntley St.
• Creating two new neurology wards
• Creating a dedicated spinal surgery ward
• Creating a larger Molly Lane Fox neuro-oncology ward
• Creating six new critical care beds
• Replacing the three lifts in Queen Mary Wing
• Improving the storage provision throughout the NHNN
• Creating a new patient information centre.

  • Have any services moved out of the NHNN?

    To enable the expansion, some services have moved out of the NHNN to other UCLH sites permanently.
    They include:
    • Our pain management service moved to a brand new bespoke centre at 25 Cleveland Street. Moving the service to the new centre has enabled us to provide additional outpatient and day care facilities. You can find more information here.
    • The neuro-otology service has moved to the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital (RNTNEH). Neuro–otology is the diagnosis, investigation, management and rehabilitation of complex, hearing, balance, eye and voice disorders. The service opened at the RNTNEH on 1 August and is provided alongside a similar RNTNEH service, enabling better co-ordination and learning between the two services.
