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 thought it might be interesting to illustrate a sample of the working relationships we have developed over the years, shining 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

For the past few years we have developed a strong partnership with the Medical Research Council and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine’s Uganda research unit. The work undertaken in this unit contributes to the control of HIV, infectious diseases, and non-communicable diseases in Uganda and the wider world.

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

Doctor in the House has been working with and accommodating visiting researchers from Kintampo Health Research Centre (KHRC) for the past 4 years. The KHRC has been operating in Kintampo, Ghana since 1994, and the research that they do in London is related to communicable diseases, particularly malaria and TB. The work and research that is done here in London contributes to health policy and practice not only in Ghana but throughout the rest of the African continent.


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

This year we established a relationship working with the ARISE project. This is aimed at creating an interagency and multidisciplinary staff exchange programme between researchers, early start investigators, and other relevant staff members to share and spread the best practice in New-born Screening, diagnosis, and treatment of Sickle Cell Disease.

This project is based on 4 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 research at The British Library

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

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.

4th & 5th Year 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 medical student doctors in the final years of their studies.

The student doctors are taking part in placements as part of their education and after completing their work at Barnet they will later become 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.
