Profile of Doctor in the House Guests

 Researchers, academics, scientists and medical professionals


At Doctor in the House we host all numbers of clinicians, researchers, and professionals from all over the world as well as the UK. We have developed a number of working relationships over the years, and thought we should shine a light on some of the excellent work our Guests are involved with.


SYNTHESYS+ project at the Natural History Museum

We have a relationship with the Natural History Museum to accommodate researchers and professors who are in the UK as part of an EU funded project called Synthesys+.

This is a Europe wide initiative to make the contents of Europe’s Natural History Museums available digitally. The idea is to create an integrated infrastructure for Europe’s natural history collections which will allow for further innovation into environmental research and scientific advancement.

Medical Research Council Uganda at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

We have developed a strong partnership with the Medical Research Council and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine’s Uganda research unit. This unit contributes to the control of HIV, infectious diseases, and non-communicable diseases in Uganda and throughout the world. 

Kintampo Health Research Council Ghana at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Doctor in the House has been accommodating visiting researchers from Kintampo Health Research Centre (KHRC) for eight years. The KHRC has been operating in Kintampo, Ghana since 1994. In London, they research communicable diseases like malaria and TB. Their work contributes to health policy and practice in Ghana and across African continent.


ARISE Project at the Royal College of Pathologists and Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital

The ARISE Project at the Royal College of Pathologists created a multidisciplinary researcher and staff exchange programme to share best practice in new-born screening, diagnosis, and treatment of Sickle Cell Disease.

This project spans four continents: North America, Asia, Africa, and Europe, and does vital work in improving laboratory diagnostics, implementing eHealth technologies, and training and support for clinical research and clinical practice.

Shakespeare at The British Library

Not all of our Guests are medical professionals, we also receive enquiries from academic doctors and professors.

In recent years we have been supplying accommodation for academics working at The British Library in King’s Cross, working on various research projects including research work on Britain’s most famous scribe – no, not J.K Rowling – William Shakespeare.

Student doctors at Barnet Hospital

Doctor in the House has a strong relationship with The Royal Free Trust. We provide accommodation local to Barnet Hospital to fourth and fifth year medical student doctors. 

Our student doctors complete placements at Barney Hospital and the surrounding areas as part of their education. Soon they will be junior doctors and be part of the new generation of NHS staff. As a company based in London we are very proud to play a small role in helping the NHS educate a fresh cohort of budding young doctors.


These are just a sample of what our Guests are working on while staying with our Doctor in the House Hosts. The work undertaken inspires great pride in the Doctor in the House team and we are delighted to make these doctors, professors, and researchers comfortable while they undertake their excellent work in the U.K.
