UCLH Private Healthcare, the private patient arm of University College London Hospitals NHS FT, has taken over the management of the private consulting rooms at 23 Queen Square, London. 

This means that both inpatient and outpatient services for private neurosciences patients at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery will now be managed by a single team, streamlining current administrative processes for private patients.

The current managing organisation, Queen Square Enterprises, will focus on delivering its world-class diagnostic imaging service at The Queen Square Imaging Centre and its sister site, the Chenies Mews Imaging Centre. 

Both UCLH and QSE will continue to work closely together to offer seamless diagnostic and treatment services for private patients with neurological concerns. 

Director of private healthcare Kerensa Heffron said: ‘This is an excellent opportunity for us to better integrate our private healthcare service at UCLH. We are also delighted that we will still be working closely with Queen Square Enterprises, who will continue to provide their superb diagnostics service to our patients.’ 

The trust’s recently published accounts show private patient revenues was £5.8m for the Covid-hit year of 2020-21, down 73% and £15.9m on £21.7m the previous year.
