The unit


If you have been diagnosed with a brain tumour you will want to be assured that you are receiving the best possible care, with the latest treatments, from the leading specialists.

The Private Brain Unit at University College Hospital is a specialist unit, offering treatment for all types of brain tumours, located in the heart of central London. Our patients benefit from expert consultants, nurses and support staff, with the rapid access and amenities of a private service, and the 24 hour backup of a leading London NHS hospital.

For outpatient appointments and day care

Outpatient care is at our state of the art treatment centre with access to a dedicated phlebotomy service, pharmacy and chemotherapy day care suite, offering chemotherapy, biological therapies and immunotherapy that can include drugs not available on the NHS. The unit provides access to the latest imagining techniques and advanced radiotherapy. 

For patients staying with us

Inpatient treatment is based on the 15th floor of the UCLH tower. Each private en suite room has panoramic views across the capital and provides access to inpatient entertainment including Sky TV and a wide selection of international channels for overseas patients, radio and wifi internet access. Catering services are provided on site by a dedicated chef catering to all dietary needs and religious requirements. 

We understand how important it is to have the support of your family and those close to you, so we do not restrict visiting hours. We also offer facilities for a family member to stay over with you if you would like.

For the latest radiotherapy treatment

Our radiotherapy  is the most advanced and targeted treatment available, delivered on the UK’s first TrueBeam STx. This technology means we can treat brain tumours with higher dose pinpoint accuracy, maximising effectiveness, protecting healthy cells and reducing treatment times.

For specialised rehabilitation

We are in partnership with The Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health (ISEH) to provide rehabilitation. Co-located withThe Private Brain Unit, The ISEH offers a dedicated and well equipped gym and access to leading physiotherapists in a light and airy space.
