WHAT DO WE DO?
King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust provides a wide range of services to the population of South East London. The Trust serves Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham with a population of 700,000.
King’s College Hospital is a teaching hospital and centre of excellence with 950 in-patient beds, several specialist units of international repute, and units offering regional or supra-regional services within the Denmark Hill site.
On 1st October 2013 South London Healthcare NHS Trust was dissolved and parts of it were acquired by King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. The Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) is in Farnborough, near Orpington, Kent. Beckenham Hospital is about 6 miles to the north of the PRUH and provides outpatient services. Orpington Hospital is 3 miles south of PRUH and provides outpatient services and has 40 intermediate care beds.
The enlarged Trust is located on multiple sites serving the economically diverse boroughs of Southwark, Lambeth and Bromley and Bexley. As both a major employer with over 10,500 staff we play an important part in helping reduce local, social and health inequalities. The enlarged Trust has an annual income of around £800m, around half of which is derived from Clinical Commissioning Groups. The Trust is embarking on a strategy to achieve greater diversification of its income, with growth anticipated in tertiary referrals, research and commercial services activities. There is also a developing fund raising partnership within King’s Health Partners.
King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has an enviable track record in research and development and service innovation. In partnership with King’s College London the Trust has recently been awarded a National Research Centre in Patient Safety and Service Quality. It is also a partner in two National Institute for Health Research Biomedical Research Centres. The first is a Comprehensive centre with King’s College London and Guy’s and St Thomas’s NHS Foundation Trust and the second is a Specialist centre with the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and the Institute of Psychiatry. King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has also recently strengthened its research and development infrastructure in order better to support clinical researchers across the organisation.
