St Mark’s Hospital Foundation

St Mark’s Hospital Foundation helps fund the innovative research projects undertaken at St Mark’s Hospital.

The charity does not receive NHS funding, hence it is reliant on the generosity of donors to generate income to facilitate multidisciplinary medical research.

Our mission is to improve the lives of patients affected by complex bowel disease. We will achieve this through research, education and the dissemination of clinical excellence.

Our vision is a future free from the fear of bowel disease.
