  • Haematology inpatient wards

    As a specialist centre for haematological (blood) cancers for people living in London and the surrounding counties, we are really pleased to able to provide inpatient care in our new hospital. With three floors dedicated to treating people with blood cancers, we are one of the largest centres in Europe.

    The wards have been designed to the highest possible specification, taking into account the specific needs of haematology patients. Each patients has their own room with ensuite bathroom. The rooms have special air filters to protect patients whose immune system has been suppressed or to manage patients who are infectious.

    On the first floor, we also have a dedicated critical care unit with 10 beds, enabling us to provide safe, effective care under one roof.

    The new facility means we can treat more patients with blood disorders and we will also be able to carry out cutting edge research at the facility, with our academic and research partner UCL.

  • Proton Beam Therapy Centre (opening in 2021)

    The University College Hospital Grafton Way Building will house one of just two NHS proton beam therapy centres in the UK.


    Proton beam therapy (PBT) is an advanced form of radiotherapy used for the treatment of complex and hard-to-treat cancers in children and adults. Previously patients had to travel abroad for PBT, but patients can now benefit from UK-based access to this advanced treatment at The Christie in Manchester and soon at UCLH, with potentially better outcomes and a lower risk of longer term side effects.
    You can read more about PBT here.

  • Critical care

    The critical care unit is based on level 1 on the same floor as, but separate from, the surgical wards and consists of 10 side rooms. The critical care unit is intended to support haematology patients and provide co-located and expert care to these patients.

  • Planned surgery and wards

    Situated in B1 are eight operating theatres and state-of-the-art recovery and discharge spaces. The surgical ward is on level 1. Planned ear, nose and throat and oral surgery and orthopaedic surgery will take place in the facility. Overnight sleep studies will also take place on the surgical wards.
  • Imaging

    There is an imaging department on the ground floor of the Grafton Way Building. The department provides imaging for outpatients and inpatients and offers MRI, CT, X-ray, ultra sound and Theatre imaging. For outpatients the initial service will be open week days between 9am and 5pm. Once the department is established, MRI and CT will be provided for OP until 8pm.The imaging reception is on the ground floor in the atrium and forms part of the main reception.
