King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Partner description:

King's College Hospital is one of London's largest and busiest teaching hospitals, with a strong profile of local services primarily serving the boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham and Bromley.

As well as being a provider of local services, we are also a centre for specialist care and a world-class teaching hospital providing nationally and internationally recognised work in liver disease and transplantation, neurosciences, haemato-oncology, foetal medicine, stroke and major trauma.

We are one of four partners in the Academic Health Sciences Centre, King’s Health Partners, that collaborates on world-class research, driving our vision to become the best medical research campus in Europe.

We constantly challenge ourselves to be better; our own measures are often more challenging than national targets. By trying new things and working hard we have done more with less: that’s the King’s way. We work as a team, supporting one another to offer the very best in patient care and experience.

Our vision is to become a fundamentally new kind of hospital built around patient need, offering all our patients – local, national and international – the highest quality of care, and to deliver this as part of a joined-up and well-managed healthcare system, built in partnership with GPs and other healthcare providers.
