UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre is a research-led day hospital in central London. It is the oncology (cancer treatment) wing of University College Hospital,[1] part of the University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The building was designed by Hopkins Architects, with fundraising by Christopher Moran of Crosby Hall, London. £10 million of the estimated £110 million cost was a donation by the charity Macmillan Cancer Support, hence the name of the building; other funders include the Teenage Cancer Trust. It has links to UCL Cancer Institute, to ensure that its treatment is current. The building is modelled on American "daycare" facilities, such as the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. It occupies the site of the former maternity hospital, the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and Obstetric Hospital, which is now a wing of the main hospital. The centre opened in April 2012. [2][3]
