The new Royal National ENT and Eastman Hospitals is now open on Huntley Street. The hospital treats conditions affecting the ear, nose, throat and mouth including dental, hearing, speech and balance services.
Bringing the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital and the Eastman Dental Hospital together in a new 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.
Please note, this is an outpatient building only. If you are having ENT or oral surgery may take place at a different UCLH location. Please check your appointment letter for details.
The Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals is located close by to University College Hospital and the Macmillan Cancer Centre. Here we provide an integrated service for our patients in a modern, purpose built environment, continue our reputations for world leading care.
Services are based in 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, and patients with ENT, sleep, speech, hearing and balance issues will be seen in modern surroundings with integrated pathways and services.
We are really proud of the heritage themes in the new 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 new facility, and in March 2018 patients and staff contributed to a time capsule which is encased within the entrance of the new facility. The content of the capsule commemorated innovations in treatments and services, with a model of cochlear ear implant, dental moulds and plain film x-rays amongst the items.
Please note both previous hospital sites on Gray's Inn Road are permanently closed.
