Evelina London Children’s Hospital is a centre of excellence for the diagnosis and management of congenital conditions in babies, even in the womb. Evelina not only cares for local families but also provides an extensive range of specialist services for children with rare and complex conditions from across south London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex. Located at St Thomas’ Hospital alongside one of the largest maternity units in the UK, it is the only hospital in London ?to offer a highly specialised children’s service and women’s service on one site. Patients can be born, diagnosed and receive the specialist care they need in the same hospital as their mother receives her care. No other children’s hospital in the UK can offer a seamless journey of care from pre-birth, through childhood, and into adult services, for complex cases as well as Evelina London. Sited alongside one of the country’s leading acute adult NHS hospitals, Evelina London’s academic partner is the world’s top 20 university, King’s College London.
