We help support cutting-edge research whose results could have a direct impact on conditions where hyperbaric oxygen treatment may be appropriate.
Our intention is that through our support, members of London Hyperbaric Medicine’s research team will be able to contribute to improvements to cancer care, treatment of brain injuries in addition to the indications accepted worldwide for hyperbaric oxygen.
Our support is available exclusively to researchers in the UK hyperbaric medical community in their quest to improve and enhance patient care. There is an expectation that the results will be published in peer reviewed journals to ensure the quality of the ongoing work.
In addition to this, we aim to facilitate access to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy on an evaluative basis for patients suffering from those previously approved conditions which commissioners have now withdrawn routine funding.
Friends of London Hyperbaric Medicine is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.
Our vision as a charity is to:
Within this vision, the charity supports research into the clinical effectiveness and place of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in the clinical treatment pathways of a range of selected conditions.
Our efforts are targeted at those conditions and patient groups that most closely align with the principles of evidence based medicine, but for which further high quality evidence may be beneficial.
