I am delighted that Guy’s and St Thomas’ scored above the national average in all six categories in a new patient-led assessment.


We are committed to ensuring that our services meet the needs of all our patients, and are constantly looking at ways we can improve so we can provide even better care. A huge thank you to our patients who took the time to take part in the assessment, and to our staff whose hard work has led to a continued improvement in our performance.


In this month’s e-GiST, you can read about HRH The Duchess of Cambridge’s visit to Evelina London Children’s Hospital, find out how we’re celebrating the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale, and read about our Trust becoming the 6,000th Living Wage employer.
