NEW HOSPITAL PROGRAMME
Barts Health NHS Trust is currently undergoing a major redevelopment programme. The Royal London will be Britain's biggest new hospital, with London's leading trauma and emergency care centre. The Royal London will include one of the UK's largest children's hospitals, as well as one of Europe's largest renal units. The Trust's other major hospital, St Bartholomew's, will become a state-of-the-art Cancer and Cardiac Centre of Excellence, incorporating services currently provided at The London Chest Hospital.
