Royal Free International - Delivering pioneering patient care and research for over 180 years

Royal Free International Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust

The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s leading teaching and research trusts and it sees patients from all over the world. The trust consists of the Royal Free Hospital and a network of clinics provided at other trusts’ hospitals and community sites.

We have been pioneering research and treatments since 1828 and continue to lead improvements in healthcare in the 21st century, from targeted cancer therapies to new kinds of surgery. As well as offering an exceptionally wide range of services to patients, we are a campus of University College Medical School and conduct important medical research, much of it of international status. A founding member of the academic health science network UCLPartners, we also train doctors, nurses, midwives and many other clinical and non-clinical professionals.

Royal Free International is part of the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. We promote and develop international collaborations and partnerships in the following areas:

  • education, training and development – ‘skills transfer’
  • hospital development and hospital management consultancy
  • medical research
  • patient services

We welcome organisations who wish to work in partnership with us to develop leading institutions. We also welcome clinicians, researchers and patients who wish to be part of this vibrant, international medical and scientific community.
