as well as education and research. Part of University College
London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, one of the UK’s
leading academic medical centres, it is the largest public
sector Complementary Medicine hospital in any industrialised
country. The RLHH’s historic building at the corner
of Great Ormond Street and Queen Square reopened in June
2005 following a comprehensive redevelopment at a cost of
about €30m. Apart from providing a 21st century base
for the provision of complementary medicine on the NHS,
