King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals, with over 6,000 staff providing around 700,000 patient contacts a year.
King’s has a unique profile, with a full range of local hospital services for people in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark as well as specialist services to patients from further afield.
The Trust is recognised internationally for its work in liver disease and transplantation, neurosciences, foetal medicine, cardiac and haemato-oncology. King’s also plays a key role in the training and education of medical, nursing and dental students with its academic partner, King’s College London.
The Trust provides around the clock specialist services for victims of stroke and cardiac arrest, including dedicated neuro-imaging and cardiac catheter laboratories and is a major A&E and trauma centre. One of the UK’s two main research centres for Patient Safety and Service Quality, the Trust is known for its strong local services and innovation, both clinically and in designing new services for patients.
King's College Hospital is working with King's College London, Guy's and St Thomas' and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts to create an Academic Health Sciences Centre – King’s Health Partners. The collaboration will integrate world-leading research, teaching and clinical service to deliver real improvements in care for both local people and patients from further afield.
Placements are available to both nursing and midwifery students.
