Outpatient staff

Homerton University Hospital Foundation Trust provides general and specialist health services. Last year we admitted 63,000 patients, saw over 236,000 patients in outpatient clinics and delivered over 6,000 babies. Every day we treated 325 patients in A&E which became the first such department in the country to be rated 'outstanding' by the Care Quality Commission.

Based in the London Borough of Hackney, we provide general health services at hospital and in the community and specialist care in obstetrics and neonatology, fetal medicine, fertility, HIV and sexual health, asthma and allergies, keyhole and bariatric surgery and neuro-rehabilitation across East London and beyond.

As a Foundation Trust we are accountable to local people who can become members and governors. We have a duty to consult and involve a board of governors drawn from patients, staff, membership and partner organisations in our strategic planning.

We have earned a reputation for the quality of training offered and are recognised as one of the top recruiters to high quality research studies in the UK with particular interest in neonatology, sexual health and respiratory medicine. We are also recognised as first adpters of methods and systems that promise better and safer patient care.

All of these factors figured when the Chief Inspector of Hospitals, Sir Mike Richards, said "More trusts need to be like Homerton".
