World-class medical researchers and clinicians in London are coming together to create Europe's largest and strongest academic health science partnership to be known as UCL Partners.
By promoting a strategic approach to medical research and healthcare across the member organisations, the partnership intends to deliver significant improvements in health for those living in London, which can be shared around the world.
The partnership will comprise around 3,500 scientists, senior researchers and consultants and is expected to oversee a combined annual turnover of around two billion.
The partnership will be between UCL (University College London), Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust (GOSH), Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (Moorfields), the Royal Free Hampstead NHS Trust (the Royal Free), and University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH).
UCL Partners will be part of London's new Global Biomedicine Hub.
The partnership initially will focus on research, education and care in seven key areas: Eyes and Vision, Immunology and transplantation, Infectious Disease, Neurological Disorders, Cardiovascular, Women's Health, Child Health. Three further themes are also developing: Cancer, Population Health and Mental Health.
The strategic development, funding and delivery of UCL Partners' services and associated research programmes will be driven by a board of directors who will oversee and coordinate these activities. Members of the board will comprise representatives of the partner organisations.
