We're one of the biggest employers in Lambeth and Southwark, with more than 17,000 colleagues working across our hospital and community services. Our people are invaluable – both to the Trust and to those we care for.


Every day we deal with the pressures of the ever-increasing demand for our services, while maintaining safe, high-quality care for our patients. We recently published our People Strategy, which specifically focuses on how we will attract, train and keep the best people working here at Guy’s and St Thomas’.


In this month’s e-GiST, find out what goes on behind the scenes in our post room, and read about one of our incredible physiotherapists who swam across the North Channel from Northern Ireland to Scotland for Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity.
