Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust is an Acute Trust with a teaching hospital, which also runs community services in Lewisham. We have an income of around £500 million. We serve a population of 600,000 people, employ 6,000 staff and have 855 beds across our two main hospital sites.
The Trust provides NHS services for local people in Lewisham, Greenwich – more...and Bexley. The Trust comprises two hospitals, University Hospital Lewisham (UHL) and Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH), as well as 11 different health centres in Lewisham. In addition, we provide some services at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup.
UHL is situated in the heart of Lewisham borough. It is a teaching hospital that obtained university status in 1997 due to the role it played in undergraduate education and research. QEH, located in Woolwich, provides a broad portfolio of primarily acute services for those living in Greenwich and North Bexley.
We have made many improvements since the Trust was formed in 2013, including important clinical developments at our hospitals. At QEH we’ve developed a new Ambulatory Care Unit and birth centre, centralised pathology, opened a Clinical Decision Unit alongside the Emergency Department and developed a new discharge lounge. Developments at UHL include a new Ambulatory Care Centre, a Rapid Response Laboratory, a Kidney Treatment Centre under construction, additional theatre capacity and expanded stroke services (consolidated from QEH). – less
