Explore the Duchess of Devonshire Wing

The Duchess of Devonshire Wing is at the heart of London’s medical community, close to Marylebone High Street. It took several years to plan and build and we were honoured when Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II opened the building officially in March 2010.

The Duchess of Devonshire Wing is the largest private cancer facility to be built in London in the last 25 years and its innovative design and approach to patient care received high commendations at the 12th Annual Building Better Healthcare Awards in 2010.

The modern facilities and treatment areas span eight floors. Levels 0 to 4 are above ground, levels B1, B2 and B3 are below ground. 

The floors below ground feature a full-length light well with transparent glass roof sections, which allow the central atrium of each underground floor to flood with natural light.

Level 4: The transplant unit

This level of the Duchess of Devonshire Wing has a 12-bed haematology unit in which all patients have their own rooms. Stem cell transplants and bone marrow transplants are carried out here, and patients with various haematology conditions, including blood disorders and cancers such as leukaemia and lymphoma, are treated here.

Level 3: The outpatient area

This floor has five bays and 22 individual areas for outpatient treatment. It also has two fully enclosed private rooms for outpatients who require extra privacy during their treatment. Patients come into level 3 as day patients for stem cell donation, apheresis and outpatient chemotherapy. The area is also used for intensive antibiotic treatment as well as to support patients whose blood counts show that they need a blood transfusion or an alternative blood product.

Levels 1 and 2: Inpatient facilities

The Duchess of Devonshire Wing also has two complete floors for inpatients. One has 17 beds, the other 18 beds, all in separate, private en-suite rooms.

Level 0: The Duchess of Devonshire wing reception

This level houses our reflection room for quiet time and prayer, holds cancer information for visitors, patients and their families, a resource room with computer access, a café for visitors and outpatients, the administration offices and our specialised cancer pharmacy.

The underground floors

These house the radiotherapy equipment – the three linear accelerators (Linacs), the CyberKnife® robotic radiosurgery system, and two Varian Linacs.


The full-height light well with glass panels allows natural light to come down right from the top floor, even in the underground parts of the Duchess of Devonshire Wing.

Facilities at the Duchess of Devonshire Wing

As well as having the latest cancer treatment facilities for surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and immunotherapy, The Duchess of Devonshire Wing at The London Clinic has access to treatment units located in other parts of the hospital’s site.

A connecting tunnel links the Duchess of Devonshire Wing with the main hospital building, so that patients, staff and portable equipment can be moved easily.

Within the building itself, everything has been designed with the needs of our patients in mind.

Each patient room has been designed for maximum comfort, cleanliness and safety.

  • Integral blinds within triple glazed windows
  • Ergonomically designed private bathrooms with washing facilities for patients who find moving around difficult
  • Rooms are all air conditioned with a very powerful filtration system
  • Alcohol rub stations are positioned in every room and throughout the patient areas to ensure hand cleanliness
  • Hands-free bins and washing facilities. The water taps have a sensor flow so staff, patients and their visitors will not have to touch them when washing hands
  • All the metalwork in the treatment areas and patient rooms are coated with an anti-bacterial finish

The Duchess of Devonshire Wing Café

The Devonshire Café is open from 7.30am to 5.30pm every weekday, and provides a calm setting for patients and visitors away from the hospital environment.

A range of products from The Soho Sandwich Company, Paul Rhodes Artisan Bakery and Lavazza coffee are available alongside a wide selection of other food and beverages.
