We are an independent charity devoted to supporting patients and staff at St Bartholomew's Hospital.

The Charity devotes its resources entirely to the patients and staff of Barts Hospital, rather than to any wider grouping. We are therefore able to stay true to the vision of the founder of Barts, Rahere, who built the hospital to benefit the poor of the City of London. Following his example, the Charity continues to help those who need some extra assistance at a time of sickness or incapacity.
