Lambeth Council have granted planning permission for a new hospital building, which will be joined to the existing Evelina London Children's Hospital.
Our expanded children's hospital will provide the space to care for even more children and young people in London and across the south east, meeting the needs of the sickest children with the most complex conditions from across the country.
Patients, families and staff have been involved every step of the way. Their feedback has helped to shaped plans so that our bigger and better children's hospital is designed around their needs, now and in the future.
Our new building will provide:
- Around 100 beds across new wards, with 20 additional critical care beds.
- A new suite of operating theatres and interventional rooms.
- Specialist imaging facilities.
- More support spaces for families and staff.

Designing the inside of our hospital
The next steps are to plan the design for the inside of the building. Children, young people and their families are at the heart of helping us to shape our designs so that, just like our current hospital, we create a bright and welcoming environment which doesn’t look or feel like a traditional hospital.
Spaces will be designed to be flexible, to allow us to adapt to the changing needs of children and young people who need our care now and in the future.
