King’s Health Partners is a partnership between the university and three large NHS Foundation Trusts - King’s College Hospital, Guy's & St Thomas’ Hospital, and South London & Maudsley Hospital.
King’s Health Partners coordinates research strategy and education strategy between the four partners, and leverages the advantages of large patient populations, their samples and their data for translational research, with the ultimate aim of enhancing clinical outcomes.
King’s Health Partners comprises five institutes based on five key specialties – Neurosciences, Cardiovascular, Diabetes, Endocrinology and Obesity, and Haematology. These areas were chosen not only because of our combined expertise but also to target our focus on the needs of our local communities.
King’s Health Partners Neurosciences has a distinctive focus on the interface between mental and physical health, which speaks directly to the priorities of the School of Neuroscience. The Head of School, Professor Mark Richardson, leads as joint director of King’s Health Partners Neurosciences together with Dr Jozef Jarosz.
