University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) is one of the most complex NHS trusts in the UK, serving a large and diverse population. In July 2004, we were one of the first NHS trusts to achieve Foundation Trust status.

We provide academically-led acute and specialist services, to people from the local area, from throughout the United Kingdom and overseas.

UCLH is committed to delivering top-quality patient care, excellent education and world class research.

We have a turnover of £700 million and contracts with 70 primary care trust commissioning bodies to provide services. We see over 700,000 outpatients and admit over 120,000 patients each year.

In December 2006, in partnership with University College London (UCL) we became one of the country’s five comprehensive biomedical research centres. We are a member of UCL Partners which brings together five of Britain’s world-renowned medical research centres and hospitals: UCL; Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust; Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust; the Royal Free Hampstead NHS Trust; and UCLH. UCL Partners was officially designated as one of the UK’s first academic health science centres by the UK Department of Health in March 2009.

We work with the Royal Free and University College Medical School, London South Bank and City universities to offer high-quality training and education.
