Queens and King George Hospitals are conveniently located in the vibrant multicultural boroughs of Havering and Redbridge with just a 20 minute journey to central London. We are also 10 minutes from the M25 and within easy reach of Essex countryside and beaches. Key worker accommodation is available a short walk from both hospital grounds.

Through our improvement plan ‘Unlocking our potential’, the Trust has recently reconfigured services to meet the challenge of providing sustainable high quality, modern healthcare for our patients. Our vision and goal of providing outstanding healthcare to our local community is embodied in our PRIDE (Passion, Responsibility, Innovation, Drive, Empowerment) values in everything we do.

It is a particularly exciting time to be a part of the trust as we have been selected as one of only 5 trusts in the country to be mentored by the Virginia Mason Institute in America. Working alongside their clinicians, we are learning practices and processes that have made them one of the safest hospitals in the world.
