Support Hub

Support and information for patients and carers affected by long term conditions

The Support Hub is on the lower ground floor of the Royal Free Hospital. It offers support and information to people affected by long-term health conditions and their carers’. The support is free of charge. Please drop in and see us or call 020 7794 0500 x 39963 if you have any questions.

Volunteer ‘check in & chats’ for those self-isolating

Self-isolating shouldn’t mean isolated. Here within the Royal Free Charity we have an amazing team of volunteers ready to check-in with all who would like to talk. If you or anyone you know would benefit from a call, please email us, rf.royalfreesupporthub@nhs.net your name, telephone number and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.​

Support hub update (16 March 2020): 

Support and information for patients and carers affected by long term health conditions

Please note the Support hub is temporarily closed to the public; this is to reduce footfall through the hospital and help protect our patients, staff and volunteers.

This includes: referral to the well-being exercise programme, weekly massage for patients, the amputee support group; as well as the general hub seating area, information leaflets and access to volunteers.  

Please note, the Welfare benefit advice service is open to current clients, although all appointments will be over the phone. 

We will also be open to new clients with long term health conditions, being seen at the Royal Free London; this will be by staff referral only. Again all new appointments will be over the phone.  Following a referral, if we are unable to make an appointment within the next 3 weeks, we will advise patients where else they can contact. 

If you have any questions please email:  rf.royalfreesupporthub@nhs.net 


Future Support hub activities

In 2018-19 we ran activities including: dance class, art, circuits, mindfulness; and we had talks on topics such as dementia and wills.

Please watch this space for more activities and events; if you are a patient with a long term condition or a carer; we would love to hear your feedback and thoughts.

Please email with your ideas and suggestions.
