Description

Guy’s and St Thomas’ is one of the largest hospital trusts in the country, with around 15,300 staff; an annual turnover of almost £1.5 billion; and more than 2.4 million patient contacts a year. Our hospitals have a long and proud history, dating back almost 900 years, and have been at the forefront of medical progress and innovation since they were founded. We continue to build on these traditions and have a reputation for clinical, teaching and research excellence.

The Trust includes St Thomas’ Hospital, Guy’s Hospital, Evelina London Children’s Hospital and both adult and children’s community services in Lambeth and Southwark. We provide a full range of hospital services for our local communities in Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham, as well as specialist services for patients from further afield, including cancer, cardiothoracic, women’s and children’s services, kidney care and orthopaedics. We have one of the largest critical care units in the UK and one of the busiest A&E departments in London.

We have a strong track record for clinical excellence, teaching and research, and financial management. Our Fit for the Future programme aims to improve further our efficiency without compromising quality and safety.

Our reputation for safe, high quality care is among the best in the UK and we strive to put patients at the heart of everything we do. ‘Barbara’s Story’ - a unique and moving staff training film to improve our care for patients with dementia - has been widely recognised as an example of best practice.

As an organisation we are committed to developing our services in ways that best suit the needs of our patients. This means that some staff groups will increasingly be asked to work a more flexible shift pattern so that we can offer services in the evenings or at weekends. We also have a positive approach to corporate social responsibility and are keen to engage our staff in an agenda that ranges from promoting environmental sustainability to the creation of local employment opportunities.

We are part of King’s Health Partners, one of six accredited UK Academic Health Sciences Centres. We also have a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre in partnership with King’s College London.

We are a leading NHS organisation in our approach to corporate social responsibility, including energy efficiency and sustainability. We have one of the largest capital investment programmes in the NHS and are making significant investments in our buildings, IT and medical equipment, for the benefit of patients.
