Patient transport drop off and collection at the UCH campus
Access should only be from Euston Road and not from Hampstead or Tottenham Court Road. Private vehicles are not permitted to drop off or collect patients from this area nor are they allowed to cross the solid white line into the PTS area, passing across the solid white line in an attempt to turn into the ambulance bay from the west is a dangerous manoeuvre and is an offence prohibited under Regulations 10 and 26 of the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD) 2012.
The TSRGD specifies traffic signs and their associated meanings, as well as the regulations associated with them, if breached, Transport for London [TfL] may issue a Penalty Charge Notice [PCN] to unauthorised vehicles.
We are currently working with Transport for London to find out if we can make the current drop off and collection areas bigger and easier to access.
Private vehicles drop-off and collection at the UCH campus
Private vehicles can drop off and collect from Beaumont Place at the rear of UCH. Parking is not permitted, only drop-off and collection. There are very limited drop-off points for other car users. However, when the blue badge/disabled spaces are empty, they can be used by non-blue badge holders for drop-off and collection to the University College Hospital. There are no other patient or visitor car parking facilities at UCLH.

What is a the parking dispensation scheme?
It is Camden Council’s parking scheme for patients with Blue Badges attending University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH). Areas in Camden, south of Euston Road, are not covered by the national Blue Badge disabled parking scheme. If you want to park near, or in, UCLH disabled parking bays, you will need to apply for a parking dispensation to use with your Blue Badge. A parking dispensation is required for parking in and around:
University College Hospital at 235 Euston Road
Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Wing at 25 Grafton Way
University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre at Huntley Street
Hospital for Tropical Diseases at Mortimer Market
Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health at 170 Tottenham Court Road
Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals at Huntley Street
University College Hospital Grafton Way Building (opening soon).
Parking dispensations are not required for the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine, or our Westmoreland Street hospital.
How to apply for a parking dispensation
When you arrive for your appointment at University College Hospital (UCH), the UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre, the Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospital, or UCH Grafton Way Building, park your car and ask for a parking dispensation at the ground floor reception desk. You will need to bring the following:
- Your Blue Badge
- Your vehicle registration number
- Proof of hospital attendance showing appointment time and date, e.g. clinic appointment letter.
If you are given a follow-up appointment while at the hospital you can return to the ground floor reception desk before you leave to obtain a parking dispensation to take away with you for your next appointment.
Please note: Parking dispensations are only issued to UCLH patients with Blue Badges who are attending hospital outpatient appointments, day cases and the Emergency Department. They are not issued to carers, relatives, visitors or friends who are Blue Badge holders bringing a non-Blue Badge holder patient to an appointment. Parking dispensations are not issued to inpatients; overnight parking is not permitted.
If you have a question about disabled parking, or would like to apply for a parking dispensation in advance please email your query to uclh.
No other car parking is available.
For information on parking in the areas surrounding our hospitals please visit http://
If you are in receipt of benefits you may be entitled to reclaim transport fares when visiting the hospital for an inpatient or outpatient appointment. Please ask the clinic staff for an attendance form and take this to the appropriate hospital's Cashiers Office. Reimbursement can be made at the time of your visit if you can produce your benefit book.
If you need assistance to plan or make a journey the National Rail Enquiries website provides information on the support available.
The page provides a summary of the services available including a list of train companies and their access information.
It is recommended that you book help 24 hours before you travel. This enables staff to give you as much information as possible before your travel; make alternative arrangements for you if the station is not step free or not staffed at the time you wish to travel; and ensure that there are enough staff for all the assistance requests at a station.
If you are driving to UCLH please be aware that most of our hospitals are within the congestion charge and the ultra low emissions zones. Find out more on the TFL website:

Patient information leaflets
The Institute is one of three centres that currently makes up an integral part of the National Centre for Sport & Exercise Medicine and also houses research, teaching and training in sport and exercise medicine and allied fields.
Since opening in the summer of 2013 the ISEH is proud to now be offering
- Excellent clinical services to both NHS, Private and Elite Sports patients
- World class research and the capability to help a wide range of organisations
- World class education delivering an MSc in Sports Medicine, Exercise and Health and an MSc in Performing Arts Medicine as well as a number of stand-alone courses
- A range of support for sporting organisations
- Important population health initiatives including the evaluation and monitoring of the Camden ‘Active Spaces’ project, a physical activity project for young people.
The Institue has also recently been named as one of nine research centres from across the world as an International Olympic Committee (IOC) Research Centre for Prevention of Injury and Protection of Athlete Health. This accreditation, which was awarded as part of the ISEH’s role as one of the three National Centres for Sport and Exercise Medicine, was made to the ISEH alongside universities and specialist sports research centres worldwide.
The Institute is a purpose-built facility with the latest state-of-the-art equipment and includes:
- Eight consulting rooms
- 3T MR imaging
- Interventional treatment rooms
- Well equipped physiotherapy gym
Although the ISEH is a partnership facility, NHS patients treated there continue to be treated under the care of UCLH. The referral process has not changed - GPs should refer to trauma and orthopaedics as before.
