The Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals opened on Huntley Street in October 2019. The hospital treats conditions affecting the ear, nose, throat and mouth including dental, hearing, speech and balance services.
Bringing the (now closed) Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital and the Eastman Dental Hospital together in a state-of-the-art building means we have created one of the largest specialist centres for the treatment of conditions relating to the head and neck, including dental; ear, nose and throat (ENT) and hearing, speech and balance. The aim is to provide world-leading, evidence-based care in a modern, purpose-built environment.
Please note, the hospital provides outpatient clinics only. If you are having surgery requiring an overnight stay, or need a general anaesthetic you will be asked to attend a different location at the UCLH site. Your appointment letter will tell you where your appointment will be and give directions on how to get there.
The Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals is located close to University College Hospital and the University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre. Services are spread across seven floors: two floors below ground and five above ground.
Two floors are dedicated to dental treatment, an entire floor is provided for children and young people. Patients with ENT, sleep, speech, hearing and balance issues will benefit from the integrated pathways and services.
We are proud of the heritage built into the Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals. The façade includes the Duveen Memorial stone from the Royal Ear Hospital (which was demolished to enable the construction of the new building).
An arts and heritage project based on the memories of staff and patients will create art for the interior of the facility, and in March 2018 patients and staff contributed to a time capsule which is encased within the entrance of the building. The contents of the capsule commemorate innovation in treatments and services, with a cochlear implant, dental moulds and plain film x-ray amongst the items.
Please note both previous hospital sites on Gray's Inn Road are permanently closed.

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

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.

Patient information leaflets
Please use the main entrance on Huntley Street. Check-in on the ground floor to confirm you have arrived. The team on the ground floor will advise you which floor your appointment is on.
There are currently teams greeting all patients arriving for appointments, they are screening all arrivals for signs of infection, to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. We also provide face masks for all patients and ask you to wear this whilst in the hospital and to use the alcohol gel on your hands.
Due to social distancing in the building, you may need to wait on the ground floor if you arrive early for your appointment. Nearer to your appointment time, you will be able to travel to the floor where your appointment is taking place. There are stairs and lifts from the ground floor.
When you arrive on the clinical floor, please go through the entrance doors and let the reception team know you have arrived. They will advise you where to wait.
You will be called to your appointment either by a handheld buzzer (for hearing impaired patients) or be called by a member of staff in person.
