Overview

The Royal London is a leading, internationally renowned teaching hospital based in east London. It is part of Barts Health NHS Trust.

We offer a full range of local and specialist services, which includes one of the largest children's hospitals in the UK with one of London's busiest paediatric Accident and Emergency departments. Home to London's air ambulance, The Royal London is also one of the capital's leading trauma and emergency care centres and hyper-acute stroke centres. We also provide care to patients with orthopaedic, renal, dermatology and sexual health conditions.

When it opens in 2012, The Royal London will be Britain’s biggest new hospital.

The Royal London is part of Barts and The London NHS Trust which is one of Britain’s leading healthcare providers. Our world-renowned hospitals – Barts in The City, The Royal London in Whitechapel and The London Chest in Bethnal Green – are home to many international experts and world-class specialist centres, from cancer, cardiac and digestive diseases to trauma and a leading children’s hospital.

Our daily mission is bringing excellence to life – giving our patients the best possible care so that they can live better, fuller, longer lives.  We aim to provide safe, clinically effective and patient centred care to the highest international standards.

We have one of the best survival rates in the NHS, a measure widely regarded as an indicator of clinical excellence overall.  During 2009/10, our survival rates were better than would be expected (as indicated in Dr Foster hospital standardised mortality ratio), given the nature and complexity of the cases we treat.  Patient safety is paramount at Barts and The London and we have an excellent track record to prove it.

And with the world’s biggest hospital development – a £1 billion investment – we will soon care for our patients in facilities that match the quality of our clinical care.
