University College Hospital (UCH) is one of the most respected state-of-the-art teaching hospitals in the UK and is one of the country’s five comprehensive biomedical research centres in partnership with the world-renowned University College London (UCL). Its Teenage and Young Adult Cancer Service is the main treatment centre for teenage cancer in London and is the largest teenage and young adult service in the UK.

UCH is a highly specialist centre for treatments including haematopoietic stem cell transplantation, CAR-T cell therapy, radiotherapy and, most recently, proton beam therapy which is delivered in the new multi-million-pound specialist Grafton Way Building, built in 2022. As a general acute NHS hospital, international patients benefit from the hospital's specialist infrastructure and back-up emergency support if needed, including 24-hour on-site intensive care and high dependency facilities.

UCH's international patient service caters for haemato-oncology patients aged 13 - 18 who have been diagnosed with blood cancers. The highly specialist team, including consultants, clinical nurse specialists, therapeutic radiographers and therapists, also care for patients undergoing cellular therapies (alloHSCT and gene therapy) for primary immunodeficiencies and red cell disorders including sickle cell anaemia and thalassaemia. In addition, the hospital treats solid tumours (primarily bone and soft tissue sarcomas) in paediatric patients up to age 18.

The specialist haematology wards have private rooms complete with all the equipment a teenager needs to make their stay in hospital as comfortable as possible, and a parent or carer is able to stay in the private rooms overnight with their child, when required.

The hospital is located on Euston Road, right in the heart of London, with easy access to all major London airports and with rail, bus, and underground network stations all nearby. 

Please note: Adult private cancer services at University College Hospital are provided by UCLH's partner organisation, HCA Healthcare.
