  • We Care video transcript

    We care about you and making you well

    And we'll pick you back up however you fell

    We're here all year round, all day and all night

    We'll do what we can to make you feel right.

    We're here from day one when the world is brand new

    And we're here at the end helping you through

    We'll tell you our name whenever we meet you

    And we will show our respect in all that we do.

     

    We care about being the best of the best

    And finding new treatments, this is our quest.

    We train the professionals of today and tomorrow

    And nurture their talent, making sure that they grow.

    We work as a team to make every choice

    And make sure we listen and value each voice.

    We'll do what we can to put you at ease

    And to look for a way to cure your disease.

     

    We care about keeping you safe while your here

    And if it all gets too much we'll lend you an ear.

    We will strive to meet your every need

    And before doing anything we'll make sure you've agreed.

    We will keep your surroundings clean and neat

    And make sure you get what you'd like to eat.

    We'll try to make sure you travel in style

    And we'll do it all whilst wearing a smile.

     

    We’ll care for your children as if they're our own

    And be by your side when you're fully grown.

    We'll come to your home if that's better for you

    And care for you there, it's the least we can do.

    We're so proud of our team and all that we are

    And we're proud  to serve patients from near and far.

    We care about caring, it's what we're so good at

    That's why we're all, here it's as simple as that.

 

Our hospitals

We are among the UK's busiest and most successful foundation trusts, with a long history of clinical excellence and high quality care. 

Our Trust is made up of two of London's best known teaching hospitals – St Thomas' Hospital and Guy's Hospital.

It also includes Evelina London Children’s Hospital and both adult and children’s community services in Lambeth and Southwark.

We are part of King’s Health Partners, one of only six academic health sciences centres in the UK.

Our services

We provide a full range of hospital services for our local communities in Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham. We also provide specialist services for patients from further afield, including cancer, cardiovascular, women's and children's services, kidney care and orthopaedics. See our services section for more information.

We have one of the largest critical care units in the UK and one of the busiest A&E departments in London.

Together we care – our strategy

Our five-year strategy (2018-2023) identifies three overall priorities for our organisations - patients, people and partnerships.
