Who we are
Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity
Our very first endowment came from Edward VI who re-established St Thomas’ Hospital in 1553 after its closure. Donations have always allowed us to improve the services we offer our patients.
Some of our recent projects include:
- The Hands Up for Health project at St Thomas' SaIL Centre which inspires young people to pursue careers in healthcare.
- The ICAP MediCinema at Guy's Hospital, which allows patients to watch the latest blockbusters and give them and their families and break from the wards.
- Vital equipment in the neonatal intensive care unit, including incubators, ventilators and phototherapy blankets to treate jaundice.
- Magic Therapy: We’re incorporating specially designed magic tricks into therapy programmes to improve the motor skills of children with upper limb motor disorders such as hemiplegia. The Magic Camp model has proved so successful for this patient group, that we hope to extend this to other regions.
