King's Health Partners (KHP) is a pioneering collaboration between one of the world's leading research-led universities, King's College London, and three of London's most successful NHS Foundation Trusts: Guy's and St Thomas', King's College Hospital and South London and Maudsley. Accredited as one of only 6 Academic Health Sciences Centres (AHSC) in 2014, our driving force is to continually seek and bring about swifter and more effective improvements in health and well-being for our patients in London and the wider population. KHP combines the best of research, clinical excellence and world class teaching to deliver ground-breaking advances in healthcare. Our combined partnership has a turnover of £4.2b per annum, 40,000 staff and 30,000 students.
The breadth of our collaboration, coupled with our strength in mental and physical health and the rich diversity of the population we serve, mean we are uniquely placed to lead innovation in clinical practice and improve outcomes for our patients.
There are three parts to our mission: excellence in research, education and clinical care. To support our mission, we are delivering programmes of work to:
- Join up mental and physical healthcare so that we treat the whole person, mind and body
- Increase the value of the care we provide and the outcomes we achieve for our patients and service users
- Integrate care across local primary, secondary and social care services to make it easier for people to get the care and support they need
- Improve the public health of our local community by tackling inequalities and supporting people to live healthy live
- Bring together our collective strength and expertise in a range of specialist areas to deliver world-leading care, research and education
We are uniquely structured to deliver our mission for excellence. Our 22 Clinical Academic Groups (CAGs) bring together all the clinical services and staff from the three NHS foundation trusts with the relevant academic departments of King’s College London.

The Institute will deliver changes in clinical and academic pathways and enable closer more integrated working across our teams in Guy’s and Thomas’, King’s College Hospitals and King’s College London, our University partner. The Institute is part of a wider long-term vision to ensure patients and the public continue to have access to the highest quality clinical care and to ensure sustainability of services. This is a significant strategic development, involving the delivery of transformation across clinical services, research and education that has local impact but also global reach.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a graduate with a serious desire to pursue a career within data science and as such there will be ample development opportunities. In return, the right candidate will have a real aptitude for organising data and extracting insights from it, using code-based approaches (primarily SQL and R).
