Covid-19 has left the NHS grappling with a perfect storm, leaving staff and patients at Breaking Point. That’s why we’ve launched an urgent appeal to support the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. Help us to pull those we care about back from the brink.

We know it’s going to take time and effort for the NHS to stabilise and recover from the severe long-term impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the meantime, patients are scared and staff are at risk of burnout. 

The Royal Free London is working tirelessly to address these issues with an ambitious programme of innovation and improvement. We know that NHS funding alone won’t fund wholesale improvements quickly enough to give patients, staff and researchers the support they need – right now.  

With your help, we can speed up their pandemic recovery.

We want to make sure your donation gets to where it will have the biggest impact for the people who need it most right now.

For example, we want to accelerate the adoption of digital innovations so that patients get treated faster. We want to fund respite spaces for exhausted staff who desperately need to top up their resilience in the face of another harsh winter. And we want to speed up research into long Covid so we can help patients get their lives back.

Will you help today?


Standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust

Charity and philanthropy have long played a vibrant role in the health service. It’s a proud tradition that for the Royal Free Hospital goes back as far as the 19th century when founder William Marsden foreshadowed the introduction of the NHS by setting up a hospital free at the point of use.  

Today, hospital charities go beyond the limitations of NHS funding to provide services, equipment and training that would otherwise simply not be available. We complement, rather than subsidise, state funding.  Together, we and the Royal Free London can achieve things the NHS can’t do alone.  

The Royal Free Charity’s vision is for everyone served by the Royal Free London to have access to world-leading healthcare, delivered by a thriving workforce and driven by medical research that has a global impact.

Our role as a hospital charity means we can focus entirely on supporting the Royal Free London to meet their goals. As a strategic partner, we work with them to identify the areas where our supporters’ donations can add the greatest value and have the biggest impact.  

Through a range of services we deliver, and the programmes and equipment we fund, we make a profound and immediate difference to patients’ experiences of care.

Our support for the Royal Free London workforce enables staff to perform at their very best. Spanning individual professional development and training through to organisation-wide interventions, our initiatives bolster employee resilience and mental health so staff can achieve the best outcomes for patients.  

We facilitate ground-breaking research with the potential to change people’s lives, whether it’s through our small grants programme or delivering major capital funding appeals.
