Emergency Department major improvement work 

What are we doing?  

We are investing £21.7 million to redevelop, expand and improve our Emergency Department at University College Hospital. The work is now in its final stages, with improvements being made to our majors area and to the children's department.

We now have:

  • one interconnected emergency department with an extra space.
  • an improved children’s emergency department, with an entrance on Grafton Way
  • a pedestrian entrance on Gower Street for adult patients, with a new waiting room and four assessment rooms.
  • a new imaging/ diagnostic suite with two x-ray rooms and a CT scanner.
  • a bigger urgent treatment centre with 12 bays and three treatment rooms.
  • a new entrance for ambulances.

What does the construction project mean for my care?
There should be no impact on your care during the building project.
