Our annual members’ meeting 2019

Members were invited to attend the 2019 Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust annual members’ meeting which took place on Wednesday 24 July at the Royal Free Hospital.

Some of the trust’s pioneering research projects were discussed during last month’s packed annual member’s meeting.

Professor Alison Rodger, who led a study which showed that anti-HIV drugs could stop the virus being passed, and Professor Anthony Schapira, who carried out world-leading research into Parkinson’s disease, were two of the speakers at the event held in the atrium at the RFH.

RFL group chief executive Caroline Clarke spoke about some highlights from the past year, including the opening of the new CFH, while Professor Derralynn Hughes spoke about how patients are helping to shape newly-redesigned cancer pathways.

Members were also invited to find out more about some of the trust’s leading projects, including the Pears Building, the UCL Institute of Immunity and Transplantation and the new decontamination unit in Enfield at display stands that were put up around the atrium.

And due to the hot weather, the Royal Free Charity supplied all the attendees with ice lollies!
