Our hospitals and other buildings provide the foundations for the care that we provide to our patients, from across London and the UK. 

Our vision is for a campus of health care and health research. This will mean:

  • patients can easily move between sites, receiving the care they need in environments that enhance their experience
  • our staff can work in collaboration across different teams
  • we can work closely with our academic and research partners to rapidly embed research findings into our clinical care.

Our latest developments include:

2021 – University College Hospital Grafton Way Building

2019 – Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals

2017 – Redevelopment of the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery

2016 – National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Cleveland Street

Ongoing developments include:

  • Expansion and improvements to our emergency department

We are also really pleased to have the following new developments:

A new world class centre of excellence for neuroscience will open in 2024 on Grays Inn Road. The project will combine UCL's Queen Square Institute of Neurology (IoN) and the headquarters of the UK Dementia Research Institute (DRI).

  • It will provide an exceptional research and treatment environment to tackle neurological diseases such as dementia, stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, disorders of movement, muscles and nerves.
  • The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, with its world-leading reputation in care and treatment for people with neurological conditions, will have an outpatient clinic with facilities to enable patient participation in research studies, and an integrated clinical and research MRI scanning unit with 6 MRI scanners, supported by the National Brain Appeal at the centre.

The co-location with the Queen Square IoN and the headquarters of the UK DRI will enable clinical activities and research to take place together within one new facility which will enable an active dialogue between individuals with neurological disorders, their doctors and researchers.

UCLH Charity is redeveloping the Middlesex Annexe and Bedford Passage (referred to as the Bedford Passage development), which were part of the old Middlesex Hospital.

Proposed plans for this mixed-use development include an outpatient imaging centre and diagnostic centre in the basement. There are residential units, including affordable social rented housing and commercial space in the floors above. The development also includes the re-opening of the Bedford Passage and the creation of a new public square, which will be fully accessible to the local community.  

The project is due for completion in 2024.

Our hospital building programmes are award winning and we focus on environmental sustainability alongside clinical excellence. Recent awards and commendations include:
