St Bartholomew’s Hospital

Our support for Barts Hospital dates back 900 years. Today, it’s a national centre of excellence for cancer care and is home to the world-leading Barts Heart Centre.

St Bartholomew’s Hospital is the oldest working hospital in the country, celebrating its 900 year anniversary in 2023. It is is located in Smithfield in the heart of the City of London.

The hospital is a centre of excellence for heart and cancer care, housing the largest cardiac centre in Europe and covering a population of 6 million. St Bartholomew’s Hospital also provides a number of additional services including endocrinology, fertility, thoracics and a minor injuries unit.

Read about how we are helping to save lives at the Barts Heart Centre based at the hospital.

To celebrate 900 years of St Bartholomew’s Hospital, we’re fundraising to build two centres of excellence – a Breast Cancer Centre at St Bartholomew’s Hospital and a Clinical Research Facility at The Royal London Hospital.

This new Breast Cancer Centre will build on Barts Health’s existing expertise in cancer care and will set an inspiring example for all breast cancer services in London. Behind this proposed centre is a world-class team of breast cancer specialists whose ambition is to create a new standard of excellence in breast cancer care.
