UCLH, situated in the heart of London, is one of the largest NHS trusts in the United Kingdom and provides first-class acute and specialist services in six hospitals.
UCL Hospitals Charitable Foundation is the main fundraising charity for key research, building and equipment projects across all University College London Hospitals. Thanks to the support and generosity of our supporters we were able to raise over £28 million towards the UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre development. We are continuing to help UCLH NHS Foundation Trust deliver cutting edge research and first-class patient care by supporting a number of new projects across our hospitals. A list of our current fundraising projects can be found under the 'Projects' header at the top of this page.
We rely on the generosity of our supporters in order to help us to run projects that positively change people's lives both now and in the future. By choosing to donate to one of our projects, or take part in one of our events, you are directly improving the experience of our patients.
Thank you for your support.
We are pleased to announce that UCL Hospitals Charitable Foundation has been awarded a generous grant over three years from our long-term supporter, the Rosetrees Trust. This wonderful award will cover the salary costs of a new Clinical Research Fellow, Dr. Lukas Kalinke, delivering the world's first ever Photodynamic ThErApy for the pRevention of Lung cancer (PEARL) Trial.
UCL Hospitals Charitable Foundation continues to receive invaluable support to enable research within the Lungs for Living Research Team. The team, led by Professor Sam Janes, investigates early lung cancer and the processes that drive progression in order to develop novel therapies for the treatment of this disease.
The funding of the Play Specialist role by Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity has been a wonderful opportunity for UCLH. We were delighted to catch up with Liz Coombs, Roald Dahl Play Specialist, for an update on her work in the Paediatric Outpatients Department.
