Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine

The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine (RLHIM) is a centre for evidence-based practice, education and research, specialising in chronic and complex medical conditions.

Our mission is to provide a person-centred, holistic approach, including self-care, in order to help people with chronic and complex medical conditions live well and feel better.

Our approach considers the whole person and their environment in the quest for optimal health and wellbeing.

In order to achieve this, we provide a combination of lifestyle strategies, medical, physical and psychological treatment, as well as advice on safe and appropriate use of complementary therapies. We also deliver and encourage self-care approaches which can continue to be used by patients after discharge.

All RLHIM services are outpatient-based and are staffed by experienced healthcare professionals.

We work closely with other hospital services within UCLH.
