Royal Free Hospital

The Royal Free Hospital is a major teaching hospital in Hampstead. It was established in 1828 by William Marsden, a newly qualified surgeon, shocked that he could not find treatment for a penniless young woman who died in his arms of hypothermia. The Royal Free was the first to provide care free of charge, and the only London hospital to stay open during the 19th century cholera epidemic.
