Becoming an NHS foundation trust

At the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, we provide a wide range of routine and specialist health services. We became a foundation trust on 1 April 2012 and when they joined us on 1 July 2014, Barnet and Chase Farm hospitals became part of our foundation trust. With the support of our governors and members, we have been using the greater financial freedom of being a foundation trust to continue providing the best possible services for our patients and local communities. 

Last year our highly skilled healthcare teams provided treatment and care for over a million patients  and achieved some of the best clinical outcomes in England. Our mortality rates have been the best among England’s hospital trusts for many years. Our goal is to continue excelling and to be in the top 10 per cent in the UK for clinical research, scientific medical research and teaching outcomes.
