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 continue to support cutting-edge lung cancer research in the Lungs for Living Research Centre, led by Professor Sam Janes.
