Building the future Evelina London

In 2021, Lambeth Council granted planning permission for a new hospital building, which would be joined to the existing Evelina London Children's Hospital.

An expanded children's hospital would 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 were involved in helping to shape these plans.

Guy’s and St Thomas’ remains committed to expanding the children’s hospital. However, we recognise that since we started to develop the plans for a new building, the financial and NHS environment we operate within has changed significantly. We are currently reviewing the options available to us so we can continue to achieve our vision to grow our children’s hospital to meet the needs of patients in the future.
