We take pride in running our hospitals and services responsibly as part of our south London community.

We work hard to:

  • encourage our staff to make healthy lifestyle choices and get more active
  • improve the lives of people with autism through the Autism Project 
  • help people aged 16-25 who are unemployed get hands-on work experience
  • offer training and mentoring programmes to develop our 13,000 staff
  • train local people through our own apprenticeships
  • encourage our staff, patients and visitors to walk or cycle to and from our sites or take public transport to reduce local air and noise pollution
  • support neighbourhood businesses, buying locally wherever we can
  • recycle more and more every year
  • cut our carbon emissions, cut waste sent to landfill, and cut energy costs.
