At King’s we are committed to using our expertise and resources in support of the international response to COVID during one of the most challenging times we have collectively faced.
Our research teams, across a number of disciplines, are currently working to tackle the impact of the outbreak in four keys areas:
- Researching life-saving treatments for COVID
- Support for our incredible NHS staff and their mental health
- A global response to help developing countries fight the outbreak
- Help for students facing financial hardship as a result of the epidemic
King's fosters a unique culture of encouragement, support and collaboration, forming King’s Health Partners with three successful NHS Foundation Trusts: Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London and Maudsley. Bringing together academics and clinicians in this way ensures we can effectively address the major health crisis our society is currently facing and puts us in a unique position to be a part of the global response to the virus, but we need your support.
London is now at the epicentre of the UK epidemic, with the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark at the heart. We work across multiple hospitals in the centre of London, and in densely populated and multicultural communities. This, coupled with our strengths in areas such as virology, immunology, biomedical engineering and mental health, has placed us in a strong position to find answers and solutions to the issues we are currently facing, to impact both communities within the UK and globally.
