Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.


We are among the UK's busiest, most successful foundation trusts. We provide a full range of local hospital and community services for people in Lambeth and Southwark, as well as specialist care for patients from further afield, including cancer, renal and cardiothoracic services. We are an integrated acute and community Trust with nearly 2 million patient contacts a year, an annual budget in excess of £1bn and over 13,000 staff.

In common with all NHS organisations, Guy’s and St Thomas’ faces significant opportunities and challenges to sustain success across a range of financial and performance dimensions. That said, the Trust has an excellent track record of mounting an effective and proactive response in such circumstances, predominantly through better utilising the talent of its staff. In recent years, a cornerstone of this has been our Fit for the Future programme, which is an ambitious portfolio of activities across the tripartite agenda of quality, safety and efficiency. At a high level, it has helped create a more efficient organisation that is able to provide healthcare excellence and system leadership despite rising demand and heightened external expectation. Fit for the Future is part of a wider strategy to support current improvement work, whilst transforming the way in which teams deliver change.
