Evelina London Children’s Hospital provides outstanding clinical services for children from before birth, throughout childhood and into adult life.

We’re proud that US Newsweek, the American weekly news magazine, has ranked our hospital as one of the world’s best for children’s services. With internationally renowned consultants, specialist staff, innovative technology and modern facilities, we provide an unrivalled depth of experience.

We offer a comprehensive range of clinical services ranging from routine to specialist care for children of all ages. Our location on the St Thomas’ Hospital site means children can access onward adult care as they get older, ensuring joined-up care from our dedicated teams.
