King's Health Partners

About us

More in this section

We are part of King’s Health Partners, one of only six Academic Health Sciences Centres in England designated by the Department of Health. 

We are committed to placing research and clinical innovation, as well as teaching and education, alongside the delivery of clinical care. In this way we are able to provide the latest treatments and best possible services to our patients, and we also play an important role in training the health professionals of tomorrow. We work closely with our partners to provide better and more joined up care for people with physical and mental healthcare needs.
