Hear more about our plans to deliver better patient care at an online event on Tuesday 25 June.

We would like to invite you to an online event with a Q&A session about our plans to build two new vascular theatres at the front of the Royal Free Hospital near the Heart Attack Centre.

In line with the trust’s clinical vision for cardiovascular services and as the designated vascular surgical hub for north central London, the proposed theatre expansion will enable us to treat more patients, reduce the time people must wait for surgery and improve outcomes for those with cardiovascular disease.

The event will take place on Tuesday 25 June at 6pm for approximately 45 minutes.

The Royal Free Hospital has been the designated vascular surgical hub for north central London since 2011. Since then, we have has seen an increased demand for surgical vascular services in the area. Across London cases have risen by 30% in the past 10 years.

We have one theatre, known as a hybrid theatre, for this type of surgery at present, which means patients can sometimes have their operations cancelled at the last minute due to emergency admissions. This can lead to people having to wait longer than we would like for their planned surgery.

The expansion of our vascular theatres will enable us to deliver elective and urgent cases and ensure we can provide the best clinical care for our patients.
