Our UK hospital

Mildmay is London’s only specialist HIV hospital. We have been at the forefront of HIV & AIDS care, treatment and rehabilitation since 1988, continually adapting and responding to meet new, often complex, and rapidly changing needs.

The #SaveMildmay campaign has received worldwide coverage

Over 63,000 people have signed our petition to Health Secretary, Matt Hancock...

Over 77,000 people have signed our petition to Health Secretary, Sajid Javid, asking for Mildmay’s unique services to be commissioned directly by NHS England like other specialist services already are. This would secure its future beyond the current pandemic response.

Patients living with HIV might lose their vital specialist services if the controversial closure of Mildmay Hospital goes ahead.

We are a charity providing NHS services, not an NHS Trust. When Mildmay Mission Hospital runs out of money, it will simply have to close.

Did you know...

Income from legacies is one of the most important sources of funding for charities, yet over two-thirds of people in the UK die without even making a will?

Not everyone who would like to support us in their will manages to do so. 66% of adults in the UK don’t even have a will.

We are working with MakeaWillOnline to make it simple, secure and FREE for you to transform your intention into a reality:


Mildmay works with over 100,000 of the most vulnerable and hard-to-reach people living with and affected by HIV and other related health issues.

Mildmay Kenya works to empower communities to deliver HIV health care services through support, education and training.

We work to reach key affected and at-risk groups including young women, children, adolescents, MSM, and sex workers.

Mildmay Uganda was Mildmay’s first international programme, opening in Kampala in 1998.

The campaign to save Mildmay Hospital from closure

We are still under threat of potential closure once COVID-19 special funding measures come to an end. 

As long as we can survive the current NHS contract funding issues that threaten our mid-to long-term future and are at the heart of the #SaveMildmay campaign, we will continue to care for vulnerable patients with advanced HIV-related neurological conditions and for people who are homeless.

Share your story with us

Do you or someone you know, have an experience of Mildmay (from any era) that you would like to share? 

Mildmay has been caring for people since the 1860s and in that time thousands of people have passed through our doors. Each one of them had their own unique experience of the hospital and its dedicated staff.

We'd love to add your story to our archive and we would also love to hear from any former staff, so please get in touch using our contact form.

Mildmay has signed up to the Tower Hamlets No Place For Hate Campaign, which aims to send clear and consistent messages that hate will not be tolerated in our borough.

We are playing our part during the COVID-19 pandemic

Mildmay Mission Hospital offers early step-down care for patients with acute HIV-related conditions and people who are homeless, as well as both HIV and homeless COVID-19 patients who are recovering and no longer infectious. This helps to release beds in acute hospitals much more quickly.

Since 22 June 2020, Mildmay Hospital has been designated as London's primary facility for homeless COVID-19 patients no longer in need of intensive care.

Despite being at risk of closure and our #SaveMildmay Campaign - our battle to stay open and viable - we are pleased to be able to care for sick and vulnerable people as we have done for over 150 years.
