King’s Health Partners Academic Health Science Centre (AHSC)
King’s Health Partners is a pioneering collaboration between King’s College London, Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts.
This unique combination brings together one of the world’s leading research-led universities and three of London’s most successful NHS Foundation Trusts.
The driving purpose behind King’s Health Partners is to continually seek and bring about swifter and more effective improvements in health and well-being for patients and people everywhere, by combining the best of basic and translational research, clinical excellence and world-class teaching to deliver ground-breaking advances in physical and mental healthcare.
King’s Health Partners (KHP) is one of only five Academic Health Science Centres in the UK accredited by the Department of Health. This followed a selection process carried out by a panel of internationally renowned clinicians and researchers.
King’s College Hospital
King’s College is one of the largest and busiest hospital Trusts in London, with a well-established national and international reputation for clinical excellence, innovation and achievement. Two thirds of the clinical activities of the hospital are in support of the socially and economically diverse communities of the boroughs of Southwark, Lambeth, Bromley and Bexley. As both a healthcare provider and a major employer with over 10,500 staff, King’s plays an important part in helping reduce local, social and health inequalities. The hospital provides a broad range of secondary services, including specialist emergency medicine (e.g. trauma, cardiac and stroke). It also provides a number of leading edge tertiary services, such as liver transplantation, neurosciences, haemato-oncology, foetal medicine, cardiology and cardiac surgery, on a regional and national basis.
In October 2013 the Trust became a multi-site organisation as it expanded to include -as well as the King’s College Hospital at Camberwell- the Princess Royal University Hospital near Bromley and Orpington Hospital.
King’s 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’ 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 has also recently strengthened its research and development infrastructure in order better to support clinical researchers across the organisation.
The Trust has an annual income in excess of £570m, the majority of which is derived from Primary Care Trust commissions. However, education and research are also important sources of income, currently contributing around 8% of the total. 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 with the King’s College Hospital Charity.”
King’s offers a family friendly working approach for all staff to ensure a good work-life balance. It is an environment where family life is promoted and this will be a feature of your annual appraisal. The Trust provides childcare advice and nursery facilities in conjunction with a supportive mentoring and career planning programme. Applications for job sharing are welcome.
