Saving and protecting lives with agile crisis response
Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust has a big mission—saving and improving the lives of more than 2 million of its patients each year. With deep roots in the UK dating back as far as 1214, it’s also known for future-leaning innovation, development, teaching and critical care services.
Fifteen thousand employees serve two million patients a year at three hospitals, over 50 sites, 19 clinical directorates and 9 support directorates.
Perhaps most importantly, Guy’s and St Thomas’ is a refuge of safety when disaster strikes in London. As a Category 1 responder along with local police, fire and ambulance services, citizens flock to Guy’s and St Thomas’ in a disaster. This is a responsibility Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust takes very seriously.
In a world of evolving threats due to everything from pandemics to acts of terrorism, Guy’s and St Thomas’ needed to mobilize more quickly with immediate, consistent and intelligent action plans.
