Support our services and help more patients going through challenging times

“I have colorectal cancer that has metastasized to my liver. And that’s what has brought me to treatment at the Royal Free London. I’m at Chase Farm Hospital fortnightly for a few hours for my infusion. It sounds ridiculous to say but I look forward to coming.”
Barry Snelgrove, patient, Royal Free London.

Every day, patients like Barry undergo treatment that can be challenging and difficult to get through, whether it’s starting chemotherapy for cancer, recovering from life-changing serious injury or facing financial worries due to time off work. Hospital visits can be frightening and very stressful experiences. That’s why our service teams are so vital.
