Origins of UHBC
The United Hospitals Boat Club comprises the boat clubs of the five current medical schools in London and the Royal Veterinary College:
These are: Royal Free & University College (RUMS); St Bartholomews & the Royal London (BL); Guys, Kings & St Thomas's (GKT); Imperial College School of Medicine (ICSM); St George's (SGH) and Royal Veterinary College (RVC).
RUMS, BL, GKT, SGH and RVC are within the confederation of the University of London and ICSM is within Imperial College.
RUMS, BL, BL, SGH and ICSM boat from the University of London Boathouse, Hartington Lane, Chiswick, London W4.
GKT is the racing name for UHBC eligible crews from Kings' College London (KCL), who boat from Tideway Scullers SC.
RUMS is part of UCL; BL is part of Queen Mary; GKT(KCL) is part of KCL.

Historical notes:
ICSM was formed by the merger of Charing Cross (red blades) & Westminster (white with portculis) and St Mary's Hospital BC (white with fleur-de-lys);
GKT was formed by the merger of Guys (navy blue blades) and St Thomas's (white, blue and red defined by diagonal lines); to form the United Medical and Dental School (UMDS); then merged with Kings.
RUMS was formed by the merger of Royal Free (yellow blades) with University College Hospital (blue) and Middlesex Hospital.
BL was formed by the merger of Barts (black and white, a chevron countercharged) and the London (blue with white checks).

The United Hospitals Boat Club was formerly known as United Hospitals Rowing Club or United Hospitals RC.
