At KCH, we have seen first-hand how the Covid-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated longstanding health inequalities in our local communities. As a healthcare organisation and local anchor institution, it’s clear we must do more to improve population health and tackle these inequalities. The Health Inequalities programme has three working groups that will tangibly focus on reducing health inequalities for our local citizens. We recognise that to do this, we must elevate the voices of our patients and communities and coproduce our interventions in partnership, helping to create a kinder, fairer and more equitable NHS for all.
King’s College Hospital is one of London’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals, with a strong profile of local services primarily serving the boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham and Bromley.
Our specialist services are available to patients across a wider catchment area, providing nationally and internationally recognised work in liver disease and transplantation, neurosciences, haemato-oncology and foetal medicine. Our values have been created by the people of King’s: we are a kind, respectful team.
