Our background and history

Our group of five hospitals has been working together since 2012.

We're internationally known for our excellence and innovation, and each of our hospitals celebrates a rich and varied history. We're very proud of the part our hospitals have played in improving lives for people in this part of east London over hundreds of years, and in their ability to overcome challenges, coming out stronger and continuing to improve.

Today, each hospital retains its unique character and we work together with the common vision to provide safe and compassionate care to 2.5 million patients in east London and beyond.
