Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital 

Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital

With over 130 years of history as a specialist hospital the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital (RNTNEH) is the UK's largest ear, nose and throat hospital and the UK and Europe's centre for audiological medicine and research. It is recognised internationally as a centre of excellence, unique in the breadth of knowledge and specialities represented on one site on Gray's Inn Road, central London

We deal with all aspects of ENT from minor procedures such as putting in grommets to major complex head and neck surgery. The ENT out-patient department provides both routine and specialist clinics including some nurse-led clinics.

Together with its partner, the UCL Ear Institute, the RNTNEH is a major national and international centre for specialist training and research.

In 2019, services currently provided at the RNTNEH and Eastman Dental Hospital, as well some services from other UCLH sites, will move to a new building on Huntley Street. The new state-of-the-art centre has been co-designed with patients and staff and supports UCLH’s vision to provide top quality patient care, excellent education and world class research. Moving closer to other UCLH sites will mean that the centre will be part of the hub of University College Hospital sites and close to UCL campus, facilitating more one stop clinics, joint working, research and clinical trials.

    • Wicklow Street closures: Works are scheduled to commence on 12 June 2017 as part of Camden’s ongoing improvement programme. These are expected to be completed by 25 August 2017. The work will be carried out on Mondays – Fridays between the hours of 8.00 am and 6.00 pm. Notices giving details of dates and times of any parking bay suspensions will be fixed to posts and street lighting columns.  It is essential that you do not park in any areas where parking has been suspended.  Any vehicles left in a prohibited area, or otherwise illegally parked, may be removed by the Council’s enforcement contractor or by the police.  Please check the parking notices on a regular basis as changes to the works programme are sometimes unavoidable, necessitating changes to dates and times of parking bay suspensions.
