Funds raised by The London Bridges Walk 2022 will support the innovative medical research and groundbreaking digital surgical training initiatives offered by The Griffin Institute, helping us to bridge the gap in funding, and will enable our partner charities to continue their own research, training and vital support services.
The Griffin Institute is the working name of Northwick Park Institute for Medical Research. We are a leading surgical training and medical research charity working to improve outcomes for patients of all ages who are living with acute and chronic disease and disability. We possess nearly 30 years of experience, converting the best in surgical skills training and scientific research into genuine successes which transform patient care.
We offer training in advanced surgical techniques, such as robotic and microsurgery, to medical professionals and surgeons in the UK, and carry out ground-breaking research into bowel and hepatic diseases, wound healing and orthopaedics to name but a few.
From our trailblazing surgical training initiatives through to our groundbreaking medical research, we always keep in mind that our ultimate objective is to transform and restore patient quality of life and health.
We are being joined by 4 partner charities in the Walk:
St Mark’s Hospital Foundation: helps to fund innovative research that is undertaken at St Mark's Hospital, a specialist in the treatment of bowel disease.
The Red Lion Group: a UK pouch support charity for people who have, or are considering having, an ileo-anal pouch, which creates a new rectum made from small bowel.
Hillingdon Hospitals Charity: raises vital funds for Hillingdon Hospital & Mount Vernon Hospital in North West London, to improve the lives of patients and their families.
London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust (LNWH) Charity: funds innovative projects that improve patient and staff experience, including cutting-edge technology and medical research at Northwick Park, Central Middlesex and Ealing Hospitals.
The Griffin Institute is the organising charity and will be bearing all administrative and operational event costs.
This year, the London Bridges Walk will be held Sunday, 26 June. We will be offering both 6.5 and 13 mile routes to walk across many of London’s iconic bridges and seeing some of the city’s most notable and historic landmarks.
