"The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine was founded as the London Homoeopathic Hospital by Dr Frederick Foster Hervey Quin in 1849.

He was among the first doctors to practice homeopathy in Britain, and had studied with its founder, Hahnemann. The original London Homoeopathic Hospital was in Golden Square, Soho, and was established on 10 October 1849, although it did not receive its first patient until March the following year...

"The Hospital continued to thrive and, in 1920, the Hospital first received Royal Patronage from His Royal Highness the Duke of York (later King George VI) who became president of the Hospital in 1924. Following his accession to the throne in 1936, the Hospital was honoured by the Patronage of His Majesty The King gaining its ‘Royal’ prefix in 1947. Subsequently, on her accession to the throne, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II became the Hospital's Patron." [1]

The Friends was started in 1975 by Sidney Jaque who donated the first £5 to start the funds moving.
