Emergency Services for children and young people are now CLOSED at UCLH and the Royal Free

Emergency services for children and young people are now CLOSED until further notice at UCLH - University College London Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital.

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.

Please call 111 for advice on the most appropriate place for care!
