UCLH provides first-class acute and specialist services in 6 hospitals in central London.
Our mission is to deliver top-quality patient care, excellent education and world-class research.
In partnership with University College London (UCL) we are 1 of the country’s 5 comprehensive biomedical research centres. We are a member of UCL partners which brings together some of the UK's world-renowned medical research centres and hospitals.
UCLH employs over 8 800 staff, has approximately 1 161 beds across all its sites with approximately 160 000 inpatient admissions and 950 000 outpatient appointments per annum.
During 2019 and 2020 UCLH will be opening 2 new hospital sites:
— opening in September 2019, a specialist centre for services currently at the Eastman Dental and Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospitals,
— opening in 2020, a new facility which includes Europe’s largest centre for blood disorders, short stay surgery and a national proton beam therapy centre.
Further information relating to the non-PFI estate can be found in the data pack issued with this ITPN and in the service matrix.
The Institute of Nuclear Medicine (INM) carries out radionuclide imaging investigations and therapies for the purposes of clinical diagnosis, treatment and research. It is the largest single site department in the UK and currently undertakes some 17 000 studies per annum.
INM provide a wide range of ‘state of the art’ nuclear medicine imaging services including:
— general nuclear medicine including in-vitro tests,
— Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT)/with x-ray Computed Tomography (CT) (SPECT/CT),
— ultra-fast dedicated cardiac SPECT,
— Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT),
— Positron Emission Tomography/Magnetic Resonance Imaging (PET/MRI) (first in the UK).
In addition, INM also perform a range of routine and experimental inpatient and outpatient radionuclide therapy procedures, with access to 10 dedicated radionuclide therapy beds.
The Authority is looking to enter into a new Contract that is able to provide an innovative and flexible approach.
It is seen as imperative that there is an on-site element to this Contract in order to maintain an efficient and effective working partnership with tangible benefits for both parties. In particular certain isotopes would continue to benefit form on site production due to their limited shelf life.
