THE QUEEN WILL OPEN THE NEW ROYAL NATIONAL ENT AND EASTMAN DENTAL HOSPITALS, UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON HOSPITALS NHS FOUNDATION TRUST

Wednesday 19th February 2020

The Queen will officially open the new premises of the Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals on Wednesday, 19th February. The state-of-the-art facility brings the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital and the Eastman Dental Hospital together under one roof.

The hospitals are part of UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust), and the two institutions have combined histories of more than 230 years of innovation in healthcare. Both undertake ground-breaking research and develop new ways to treat rare and complex dental, ear, nose, throat, hearing and balance conditions. More than 200,000 appointments will be carried out each year at the new facility.

At the hospitals, Her Majesty will see first-hand the work being carried out across the facility’s specialties, visiting the adult dental treatment floor, the paediatric treatment floor and the auditory implant centre. The Queen will speak to patients who have benefited from the hospitals’ care and meet staff, including dental and ENT clinicians, who will showcase the units.

On the paediatric floor, Her Majesty will meet children and families taking part in creative health play sessions. These sessions are used to prepare children for treatment, often to help with pre-treatment anxiety, and to teach children about their condition, overseen by play specialists and nurses.

Catch up on Her Majesty’s most recent engagements, in the latest issue of Royal Life magazine.
