Who we work with
We work with a range of partners across south east London and beyond.
We have a range of stakeholders and partners across the health, care and academic economies including local NHS commissioners, specialist-service commissioners, GP localities, patient organisations, our local authorities, Health Education South London and other higher education organisations. We also form part of wider academic healthcare partnerships, including the Health Innovation Network, Southwark and Lambeth Integrated Care and our strategic alliance with St George’s Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and St George’s, University of London.
Health Innovation Network (HIN)
The Health Innovation Network (HIN) is a membership organisation, driving lasting improvements in patient and population health outcomes by spreading the adoption of innovation into practice across the health system and capitalising on teaching and research strengths. Our diverse membership includes all healthcare providers (community, acute, mental health and primary care), commissioners, local authorities and higher education providers. In all our work programmes there are strong relationships and collaboration with both patient and industry partners.
South East London Integrated Care System
We are working with our partners across South East London to develop and deliver our Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP).
In particular, we are helping to ensure that:
- the integration of mental and physical healthcare is at the forefront of our STP’s ambition
- we maximise the potential of our collective strength in the provision of specialised services
- we achieve the best possible value for the healthcare we are providing
- innovation and new ways of working to improve patient care are more widely encouraged and adopted, including digital health and informatics solutions
We are also working with the North West London Integrated Care System and the South West London Integrated Care System to plan how we will transform health and social care services to meet the changing needs of local people.
NIHR Applied Research Collaboration South London
The NIHR Applied Research Collaboration South London is an organisation that brings together researchers, health and social care practitioners, and local people to improve health and social care in south London.
Its applied research is designed to solve practical problems faced by local health and social care services. The aim is to help local NHS and social care services offer excellent care, based on sound evidence.
It also provides a range of training to develop the skills needed to put research evidence into practice.
European University Hospital Alliance
The European University Hospital Alliance (EUHA) was formed in 2017 with the commitment of nine of the best university hospitals in Europe to share their expertise in health care, research and education.
University hospitals play an important role in driving innovation and translating this into practice. Through the alliance our members aim to play an active role in shaping the future of European health care, learn from each other to maximise patient outcomes and combine efforts to drive high quality research.
In particular, King's Health Partners works with EUHA on the weekly 'Meet the Expert' webinar series.

The institute's mission is to unite the UK’s health and care data to enable discoveries that improve people’s lives. It does this by uniting, improving and using health and care data as one national institute.

St George’s Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and St George’s, University of London
We have formed a Strategic Alliance with St George’s Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and St George’s, University of London that will share best practice in research and the education and training of students and health professionals.
By working together the Alliance aims to make a significant and lasting impact on health and healthcare in south London by contributing leadership to wider partnership organisations and by identifying additional opportunities and synergies which can be delivered through joint work programmes locally.
