Temporary changes to children and young people’s emergency and inpatient health services in north central London
We have reviewed children and young people’s NHS services to ensure we can provide the best emergency and planned care during the pandemic and throughout the winter, when pressure on our hospitals increases.
Emergency and general inpatient services for children and young people have temporarily closed at University College London Hospitals and the Royal Free Hospital from Monday 28 September.
This means you might need to go to a different hospital in an emergency or for a planned appointment. Children and young people’s emergency services remain open at Barnet Hospital, the Whittington Hospital and the North Middlesex University Hospital.
There are children and young people’s emergency departments at:
- Whittington Hospital
- Barnet Hospital
- North Middlesex University Hospital
- St Mary’s Hospital
- Royal London Hospital
Please call 111 for advice on the most appropriate place for care. For life-threatening emergencies call 999 immediately.
University College London Hospitals and the Royal Free Hospital emergency departments remain open for adult patients.
