In June 2005, Head and Neck services for North Central London were concentrated onto the new University College Hospital site at Euston.

The centre saw the co-location of ENT and Maxillofacial Head and Neck oncology services that had previously been provided at various sites (Royal Free Hampstead, Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital, and UCLH).

The new hospital has invested in substantial new facilities and services and now has one of the largest Head and Neck departments in the country.

Chemotherapy using the latest drug therapies
