Homerton Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

We are a forward thinking NHS Foundation Trust based in the London Borough of Hackney, providing general and specialist health services at hospital and in the community with staff working out of over 60 sites. We offer a range of specialist care in obstetrics and neonatology, fetal medicine, fertility, HIV and sexual health, asthma and allergies, keyhole and bariatric surgery and neuro-rehabilitation across east London and beyond. The hospital has almost 500 beds spread across 11 wards, a 9-bed intensive care unit and maternity, paediatric and neonatal wards. We have three day-surgery theatres and six main operating theatres for all types of general surgery, trauma and orthopaedics, gynaecology, maxio-facial, urology, ENT, obesity, bariatric and obstetrics. We also have a surgical treatment room within the main theatres complex.. As a Foundation Trust we are accountable to local people who can become members and governors. We have a duty to consult and involve a Board of Governors drawn from patients, staff, membership and partner organisations in our strategic planning. We have earned a reputation for the quality of training offered and are recognised as one of the top recruiters to high quality research studies in the UK with particular interest in neonatal, sexual health and respiratory medicine. We embrace methods and systems that promise better and safer patient care and in 2016 we implemented two major IT programmes: Acute Clinical Excellence (ACE) and Open RiO All of these factors figured when the Chief Inspector of Hospitals Sir Mike Richards said “More trusts need to be like Homerton”.
