Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust comprises five of the UK’s best known hospitals – Guy’s, St Thomas’, Evelina London Children’s Hospital, Royal Brompton and Harefield – as well as community services in Lambeth and Southwark, all with a long history of high-quality care, clinical excellence, research and innovation.
Evelina London Children's Hospital is within walking distance of London’s vibrant Southbank with a range of restaurants, cafés, pubs and bars. The Southbank has the advantage of being home to many of London’s well known attractions such as the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe, the Sea-Life Aquarium, Royal Festival Hall, London Dungeon, The Old Vic, London Film Museum, Jubilee Gardens and the London Eye, and more.
We also provide specialist inpatient and outpatient children’s services for heart and lung conditions at Royal Brompton Hospital in Chelsea and outpatient services at Harefield Hospital near Uxbridge. The Royal Brompton Hospital is situated in Chelsea, right in the heart of London. The area is well served by the London Underground and bus routes.
Our community services are based at two main health centres: Mary Sheridan Centre in Lambeth and Sunshine House in Southwark but we provide care in many more across Lambeth and Southwark. We also provide services in schools, community buildings, in families’ homes, and occasionally in hospital. A part of the Guy’s and St Thomas’ family.
