Our vision

King's Health Partners pioneers better health and well-being, locally and globally, through integrating excellence in research, education and training, and patient care.

Our mission
King's Health Partners will become the UK's leading Academic Health Sciences Centre. We will:

  • drive the integration of research, education and training and clinical care, for the benefit of patients, through our Clinical Academic Groups (CAGs);

  • consider all aspects of the health needs of our patients when they come to us for help;

  • improve health and well-being across our ethnically and socially diverse communities and work to reduce inequalities;

  • develop an AHSC that draws upon all academic expertise in medical science and also in basic science, social science, law and humanities;

  • deliver a radical shift in healthcare by identifying ‘at risk' groups, based on genotype and lifestyle, and helping them to avoid illness;

  • work innovatively with stakeholders in the redesign of care pathways, including the delivery of care closer to home.

Our values and guiding principles
Our values and guiding principles will ensure that we will work together effectively across the partnership and with all our stakeholders to:

  • Always put our patients first: by ensuring that the patient is at the heart of everything we do.

  • Focus on pioneering research: by rapidly and efficiently translating new discoveries into practical actions and benefits for patients locally, nationally and internationally.

  • Provide innovative learning opportunities: by bringing together educational, academic and clinical expertise to deliver a world-class learning experience for students and the entire workforce.

  • Work in partnership: by building on and extending clinical and academic collaborations and links locally and globally.

  • Transform the nature of healthcare: by moving from treatment towards population screening and disease prevention.

  • Deliver excellence: by setting new standards of achievement in patient care, research, and education and training.

  • Disseminate knowledge: by ensuring benefits from our innovations are widely adopted.

  • Exercise scholarship in everything we do: by being enquiring, thoughtful, reflective and challenging to ensure that everything we do adds value.

  • Be inclusive: by designing systems and procedures so that everyone is actively encouraged to become involved and has the opportunity to do so.

Our community
From our multiple locations at the heart of London we see 3.6 million patients a year.  We serve a local population of over two million people and a wider catchment area for specialist services of up to five million.

We are one of the largest employers in our community and with a combined turnover of over £2.8 billion we have the scale to compete on the world stage, attracting the best academics, clinicians, staff and students to pioneer world-leading advances in health and well-being.

Our local population of south London is projected to grow significantly over the next decade, there is considerable diversity and inequality in health outcomes. We need to address the inequalities by using our resources to maximum effect.

We focus on effectiveness and efficiency to release resources to deliver better services. Working with stakeholders, we strive to enhance healthy lifestyles, to address public health issues and to create a sustainable and affordable healthcare system that will benefit all.
