Husky Ward

Specialist unit

Arctic

First floor, Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

Directions: take the Red Moon lift (lift B) to the first floor. This is at the far end of the hospital beyond the helter-skelter.

Husky Ward is a specialist unit where medical procedures and operations can be carried out without the need for patients to stay in hospital overnight.

We also have a Children's Day Unit in North Wing, St Thomas' Hospital, a short walk away. If you're asked to go to the Children's Day Unit you will need to go to 10th floor, North Wing, St Thomas.
