I am extremely proud to take up the role of Chief Executive of Guy’s and St Thomas’, as Amanda Pritchard starts her secondment as the new Chief Operating Officer for NHS England and NHS Improvement.


As someone who has spent most of my working life at Guy’s and St Thomas’, this is a huge honour for me. Our staff work hard every day to provide the best possible care to our patients, so I was delighted that our recent Care Quality Commission report highlights so much of what makes our Trust such a caring and compassionate organisation.


In this month’s e-GiST, find out about choosing the right service when you are unwell, read about our new dialysis unit at St Thomas’ Hospital, and find out about the world’s first clinic for men with Klinefelter syndrome.


Dr Ian Abbs
Chief Executive
