Supporting exceptional care

The drive and commitment to provide the very best care is what fuels the teams at Guy’s and St Thomas’. We’re dedicated to supporting them with developing new treatments, backing world-leading research and shaping innovative approaches, such as helping long-term critically ill patients stay active and prepare for life after recovery.

We’re constantly inspired by the remarkable teams at Guy’s and St Thomas’ and we know it’s essential for them to receive the right care and support too. Despite being pushed to their limits during the pandemic, their passion and commitment was astounding. That’s why we help provide an enhanced level of health and wellbeing support. This essential programme helps them to keep thriving at work and continuing to provide exceptional care.

Pioneering treatment and care

Guy’s and St Thomas’ is a place of pioneers, change-makers, innovators and educators, whose trailblazing efforts lead to exceptional care. The Trust was the first in the UK to treat a serious heart condition completely by key-hole surgery, avoiding the need for open-heart surgery and speeding up recovery.

We’re here to help their teams of around 22,000 build on this legacy, striving to meet – and exceed – the needs of one of the most densely populated and diverse areas of London. All the work we do means Guy’s and St Thomas’ can deliver better treatment and outcomes for more people, today and for generations to come.

Together we share the drive and commitment to be exceptional for patients, staff and our communities. So, whether you are donating, thanking, celebrating, commemorating, running, jumping or just going the extra mile, you can make a really important contribution today.
