King's Health Partners impact over time

In 2020, King’s Health Partners was successfully re-designated as an Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC) for a further five years. In October 2020, we launched ‘Delivering better health for all through high impact innovation’, our ambitious plan for 2020-2025 which builds on all we have achieved over the past 11 years. 

Since its creation, King’s Health Partners has led the way in breaking down barriers to combine basic and translational health research, clinical care and education to create world-leading improvements in healthcare.

Timeline of KHP major developments

Our experiences and commitment to excellence for our communities is seen in our 2014-19 strategy ‘Improving health and wellbeing – locally and globally’ and our most recent five-year plan for 2020-25 'Delivering better health for all through high impact innovation'

Significant progress to align the NHS and academic partners has seen a transformation of health and care delivery in South East London. Over the years, the establishment of the clinical academic groups has underpinned substantial research funding investments, enabling the engine of world-class excellence in health research to be coupled with academic expertise in medical education and training. Through this strategic alignment of the partners, real progress has been made and the AHSC is working across all its programmes to get the best outcomes for the local population. 

Professor Chris Whitty - Chief Medical Officer for England. 

I am a strong advocate of Academic Health Science Centres – bringing together the NHS, National Institute for Health Research, Biomedical Research Centres and universities helps us get the best research for patients.
The best research in the world is of limited value unless you can put it into practice. This type of partnership brings together the brightest minds to offer patients the very best care and treatment, based on quality evidence. The world looks on in envy at the collaboration achieved at King’s Health Partners – and I look forward to seeing even more success going forward.
