The Newcomen Centre is situated in the South Wing of St Thomas’ Hospital, a Grade II Listed Building. The works saw the conversion of the existing departments into a new Paediatric Neurosciences Department. The centre also has a separate Sleep Disorder Unit for Children and offers assessment and full office support facilities for autistic children including observation and consulting rooms with audio-visual recording systems, training facilities, conference and telecommunication rooms.
