Guy'S And St Thomas' Hospital Trust

In December 2013, the proposed merger of Kings College Hospital in south London with Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust was suspended because of doubts about the Competition Commission's response. Guys Hospital was founded in 1993 as an NHS Trust, which includes Lewisham University Hospital. Lewisham Hospital was independent until Guys and St Thomas joined.    Show Source Texts

The trust partnered with Viapath, a London-based pathology services provider owned by Serco, and Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. The Trusts Genomic Medicine Centre, Genomics England, opened in England in February 2014. In 2014, the Trust established ETL Essentia Trading Limited, which enables public and private sector organisations to transform the environment and create significant legacies.

It is the largest provider of specialist services in England and generated income of £3,837 in 2014 / 15. The trust signed a contract with Johnson & Johnson in 2017 to open an operating theatre in 2020, which opened in April 2019. After geographical restrictions on paediatric referrals, dermatology and urology were introduced in October 2018, there was a sharp increase in referrals from north London, Kent and Sussex, with waiting times unmanageable.    Show Source Texts

The foundation offers a range of services, including assisted contraception for children and maternity.
