Building better health services

Entrance2

Plans for a new clinical facility in London – housing the world’s most advanced form of radiotherapy – are now open for public consultation.

The new development will start with the construction of a Proton Beam Therapy (PBT) Centre below ground. A state-of-the-art patient facility with patient beds and operating theatres will then be built above ground.

The whole facility is planned to be over 25,000 sq m with four floors below ground and five floors above ground. People will access the Centre through a main entrance at ground floor level on the corner of Grafton Way and Huntley Street.

Over the coming weeks UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) will be listening to what local politicians, residents, patients and staff have to say about the proposals for the site on Grafton Way and Huntley Street in the heart of the capital. A public exhibition of the proposals, will be taking place on Monday 7th October, 2.30pm – 7.30pm, and Tuesday 8th October, 2.30pm – 7.30pm in University College Hospital’s Atrium. The development team will be available to answer questions about the proposals and the services that would be provided on site.

The Proton Beam Therapy Centre at University College London Hospital is designed by Scott Tallon Walker Architects in association with Edward Williams Architects & Tsoi Kobus & Associates

Further information is available on the UCLH website.
