Health & Social Care
Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.
Guy’s and St Thomas’ provide a full range of services for local residents as well as specialist services for patients from further afield. Care takes place in two of London's best known teaching hospitals, Guy's Hospital and St Thomas' Hospital, where the Evelina London Children's Hospital is also located. Guy’s and St Thomas are part of King’s Health Partners, one of only five academic health sciences centres in the UK. As such, they are pioneers in health research, and provide high-quality teaching and education.
