Lambeth link corridor closure
Lambeth link corridor is closing from Monday 23 March
The Lambeth link corridor from the Emergency Department (A&E) to East Wing at St Thomas’ Hospital will close permanently on Monday 23 March to enable construction of our new Emergency Floor to progress.
The pedestrian entrance to the Emergency Department (A&E) from Lambeth Palace Road will be maintained, the department will remain open 24 hours a day and all other emergency services will continue to operate as normal.
Signs will be in place to direct pedestrians to Lambeth Wing and the main entrance to access all other departments.
This work is being carried out as part of a £20 million project which started last year to rebuild our busy Emergency Department (A&E) and create a state-of-the-art Emergency Floor.
The investment will improve the quality, safety and efficiency of care, as well as the overall experience of patients requiring emergency treatment.
