Support our Staff – Royal Free London Heroes

Staff at our hospitals - Barnet Hospital, Chase Farm Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital - are facing the biggest challenge of their lives in the fight against Covid-19. Working long hours, and undergoing great personal sacrifice, they are telling us how we can best support them, as they care for our loved ones. Much of this support will be funded by the government, but not all. That’s why we’re launching this emergency fund.

Please join us and support your local NHS heroes.

Making today feel better

The Royal Free Charity is reimagining healthcare. As a partnership charity encompassing the Royal Free Charity, Chase Farm Charity, Barnet Hospital Charity, St Peter’s Trust and Fiorina, we work to make every patient’s experience be the best it can.

How we make a difference

Equally vital for patient care are the dozens of smaller things that improve wellbeing: from toiletry kits to a pair of slippers for an elderly patient, or a Wii game that a child can use to improve physical coordination or as a distraction.

Research and grants

Throughout history the Royal Free Hospital has been known for some truly outstanding innovations which have changed not just the lives of individual patients, but medical practice in general. We carry this spirit forward with over £2.5m of funding into medical research every year.
