Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a high performing and flourishing organisation serving the population of Hackney, East London, the City and beyond.

We are very proud that the CQC has recently rated Homerton Hospital's A&E department as 'Outstanding', medical care at the hospital as 'Outstanding', and our acute services overall as 'Good'.

Our integrated Trust provides comprehensive hospital and community health services for its local population and a range of specialist services for a wider group of patients. These specialist services include obstetrics, neonatology, foetal medicine, fertility, neuro-rehabilitation, bariatric surgery, and asthma and allergy services.

The local City and Hackney community served by the Trust is highly diverse with a complex mix of clinical and cultural needs. Good working relationships, strong multi-agency working arrangements and integrated pathways already exist between hospital and community health services, primary care, local authority and mental health services.

The trust is an active partner in bringing different services together across City and Hackney to provide integrated care closer to home, and in the development of an 'Integrated Care System', of which the Trust is a major partner, which aims to bring together health and care services, the wider community and voluntary sector to work closer together to provide great services for local people in City and Hackney.

Homerton has a proud tradition of supporting and developing its staff, including its well regarded and valued nursing community, and all staff are able to take advantage of a great range of benefits.

Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is proud to have been included on the HSJ and Nursing Times Best Places to Work list, and has recently achieved 'Excellence' status in the Healthy Workplace Charter, as awarded by the Greater London Authority.
