Referral/Teaching Hospital | London, United Kingdom

Hospital description

Originally named the London Infirmary, the Royal London Hospital was founded in September 1740, becoming the London Hospital in 1748 and then settling on its current moniker on its 250th anniversary 1990. The hospital is part of Barts Health NHS Trust and is a teaching institution for St Bartholemew’s Medical School. It provides district general hospital services for the City of London and the borough of Tower Hamlets, and is also a specialist tertiary care centre for the London area. It includes one of the largest children’s hospitals in the UK with one of London’s busiest paediatric Accident and Emergency departments.

In addition to all of this, the Royal London is the base for the HEMS helicopter ambulance service, which operates out of a specially built roof area.
