Our vision

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 mission

The Royal Free Charity supports our hospitals, our NHS colleagues, our patients and our researchers.

From small acts of kindness to huge investments in discovery and innovation, everything we do changes lives for the better.

Our extraordinary volunteers enrich the experience of patients and the support they provide to NHS staff is transformational.

We’re there when patients need us, thanks to the services we provide. And the grants that we make help our hospitals to accelerate vital medical research and invest in innovations to help patients and staff.

All this is made possible by the generosity of our supporters who help our hospitals go further and faster than the NHS could do alone.

Our values
  • Partnership
  • Respect
  • Innovation
  • Dedication
  • Energy

Our values define the spirit in which we carry out our work and the culture we’ve fostered together.

They reflect our ambition to be a proudly fundraising-focused organisation and our determination to make things better for the patients and staff of our NHS partner.
