Patients to meet the Queen at official opening of new ENT and dental facilities
Patients in London are eagerly awaiting a visit from Her Majesty the Queen. The Queen will be officially opening a brand new health facility, which houses the Eastman Dental Hospital and the Royal National ENT Hospital.
The new, state of the art facility represents a cutting-edge treatment centre for the diagnosis, management and prevention of conditions and symptoms that affect the head and neck.
Both hospitals are part of UCLH, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and they are leading institutions in both the treatment of head and neck conditions and the undertaking of pioneering research studies. Researchers based at the centre are working on new ways to diagnose and treat complex, rare symptoms that affect the mouth, ears and nose and impact balance and coordination.
During her visit to the new facility, the Queen will be taken on a guided tour, which will enable her to see the work that goes on at the hospitals at first-hand. Staff will take the Queen to the adult dental floor, as well as the paediatric department and the auditory implant centre. There will also be an opportunity for the monarch to speak to patients who have received care at the centre and to meet dentists and doctors based at the specialist hospitals. During her tour of the paediatric wards, the Queen will observe a creative play session for young patients and their parents.Join this Discussion
