King’s Health Partners is an Academic Health Sciences Centre bringing research, education and clinical practice together across three NHS Foundation Trusts, Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London and Maudsley with a world-leading university, King’s College London. 

Our Partners 

King’s College London is the largest centre for healthcare education in Europe (with more applications per place in medicine than any other) and provides education and research in the widest range of subjects allied to medicine of any London institution. 
Our three NHS founders; Guy's and St Thomas', King's College Hospital and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts, serve a local population which is among the most ethnically, socially and economically diverse in the world. Together they provide a full range of medical and healthcare services, from acute and specialist medical care, local and highly specialised mental healthcare, and services that promote physical and psychological wellbeing. 

Our work 

Our core team coordinates and supports activity right across our partnership. We work closely with colleagues in our partner organisations to drive delivery of our shared mission. 

We improve health and care services by translating early scientific research, discoveries and ideas to benefit patients and our communities. We connect people and programmes across our partnership and train and develop future generations of healthcare professionals.  

We are building on our five-year strategy, accelerating progress in three ambitious, connected priorities: 

  • Personalised Health;  
  • Digital Health and Data Sciences; 
  • Population Health. 

We take a mind and body approach, integrating mental and physical health across everything we do, including addressing the inequalities in health outcomes experienced by people with mental illness.  

We are committed to focusing our energy in these areas, driving change through clinical academic collaboration, and improving health outcomes through sustainable system partnerships.
