As a specialist centre for haematological (blood) cancers for people living in north and east London and surrounding areas, our new hospital will have three floors dedicated to treating people with blood cancers. It will be 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 patient has their own room with an 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 will 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 will be able to 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.

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 takes place in the facility.
 

The Grafton Way Building has a dedicated critical care unit. Here patients receive care in 10 individual rooms with the latest technology and equipment from our highly trained multi disciplinary team.

Each room has beautiful artwork to enhance the environment and aid recovery.

The unit is based on level 1.

The imaging centre is on the ground floor. It includes MRI, CT, X-ray and ultra sound and will be for outpatients and inpatients. 

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 benefit from local access to this advanced treatment at The Christie in Manchester and soon at UCLH, with potentially better outcomes and a lower risk of long term side effects.

The imaging service based in the PBT centre will be used by radiotherapy patients from April 2021.
 

There is a café on the ground floor. Toilets are located on every floor including disabled toilets (for those who need assistance and those who do not). There is a drop-off area for people arriving by car on Grafton Way.

We have a cycle parking area for our patents and visitors surrounding the outside of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Wing on Grafton Way and Gower Street. There is capacity for 52 bicycles under cover and behind railings. General security monitoring is carried out, but entry and exit to this area is open at all times and so it is essential to bring a suitable lock with you if you plan to use it.

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.disabledparking@nhs.net or telephone 020 3447 9922. Please note that at least one week's advance notice is required.

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 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 evidence that you are a claimant.
