Thank you for your interest in the Programme Director role for the Evelina London Children’s Hospital Expansion Programme.

Guy’s & St Thomas’ is one of the largest hospital trusts in the country, with around 17,000 staff, an annual turnover of more than £1.6 billion, and over 2.6 million patient contacts a year. Our hospitals have a long and proud history, dating back almost 900 years, and have been at the forefront of medical progress and innovation since they were founded. We continue to build on these traditions and have a reputation for clinical, teaching and research excellence. Evelina London Children’s Hospital, which opened in 2005, is located alongside St. Thomas’ Hospital in a purpose-built dedicated children’s facility. One of 11 major children’s hospitals nationally, it has grown rapidly to become the second largest provider of specialist children’s services in London. Evelina London operates as a distinct entity within the Trust, with devolved accountability and its own Board and Executive Team. It has a turnover in excess of £300m per annum, and over 3000 staff working across hospital and community settings. Demand for Evelina London’s specialist children’s services has grown rapidly since its opening, as has the complexity and acuity of patients referred, in line with national trends. In 2012 the Trust embarked on a staged programme of strategic development to enable Evelina London to become a world-class fully comprehensive specialist children’s hospital at the hub of a network for South London and the South East England. The expansion of Evelina London Children’s Hospital (ELCH) and its services is one of the Trust’s major programmes of change, contributing to realising the Trust’s vision. We are now progressing into the second phase of the programme with a major capital development (estimated at c. £400m and to be delivered over the next 6 years) to expand our footprint outside of our current estate portfolio, and associated clinical, academic and workforce developments. This phase of development is also expected to enable the transfer and integration of children’s services from the Royal Brompton Hospital, subject to public consultation.

Trust is a very special place, with a unique history of innovation and care stretching back hundreds of years. We are guided by our values in everything we do: we put patients first, take pride in what we do, respect others, strive to be the best, and act with integrity. We have made great progress in implementing our 2014-19 clinical strategy, including opening our £160m Cancer Centre, achieving a rating of ‘good’ from the Care Quality Commission, developing our Healthcare Alliance, opening treatment centres closer to patients’ homes across south London and south east England, forming new commercial and clinical partnerships, developing new models to care for patients outside our hospitals and building our capabilities in cellular and regenerative medicine. In the year of the 70th birthday of the NHS, we are in a strong position for the future. Over recent years, our staff have worked harder than ever to meet the growing needs of our patients, deliver quality care, improve our performance, and balance our books. These bring a heightened level of urgency to the need, together, to find new ways to relate to our patients, to improve the services we deliver and to collaborate with our partners if we are to succeed in meeting those aspirations over the next period. We cannot afford to slow the pace on our plans to improve our efficiency, find new ways of working, and transform our organisation.

wellbeing, as a local, national and international leader in clinical care, education and research. Together we have identified three overall priorities for our organisation over the next five years: 1. Transforming our relationships with our patients and the populations we serve by; involving patients as partners in their own health, wellbeing and care and placing patient and public engagement at the heart of everything we do. We aim to meet their expectations of 21st century healthcare , using digital technology to improve access and services. 2. Supporting our staff to improve the way we work by investing in our staff and improving the way we work to deliver consistently excellent care and securing our finances for the future . We need to be stronger and more responsive than ever to flourish in a challenging context and to continue to remain fit for the future. 3. Building new partnerships and strengthening existing relationships , creating world class clinical academic services, developing integrated local services and accelerating the introduction of world leading advanced therapeutics, experimental medicine and medical technology.

7 Programme Director

Our strategy sets out how we will address these three overall priorities, and the objectives within them, in order to achieve our vision. Together we care , our new strategy is a framework to guide our decisions over the next five years, and to help us to consider how best to respond to new developments. The NHS and the wider world will keep changing and we need to be flexible in our response. This is an ambitious strategic agenda but thanks to the hard work, leadership and care shown by our brilliant staff, we are in a strong position for the future. We believe our strategy will help us deliver better care for our patients, a better working environment for our teams, and a sustainable future for the organisation that we care so much about. We will now organise ourselves to achieve these goals and put our strategy into action, building our strategy into our business planning, financial planning and governance systems. Everyone at Guy’s and St Thomas’ has a crucial part to play in helping to achieve our strategy and together, we will go from strength to strength.

Evelina London’s vision is to be a world leader in life changing care putting children, young people and their families at the heart of everything we do.

Evelina London Children’s Hospital (ELCH), which opened in 2005, is located alongside St. Thomas’ Hospital in a purpose-built dedicated children’s facility. One of 11 major children’s hospitals nationally, it has grown rapidly to become the second largest provider of specialist children’s services in London. It provides acute secondary care services to South East London and community services, including health visiting, school nursing and support for families of children with long-term conditions, to the local population living in Lambeth and Southwark. As the specialist centre at the ‘hub’ of a network extending across South London and South East England, it also provides an almost comprehensive range of specialist services (including cardiac, renal and critical care) for the large and growing population of children and young people. See www.evelinalondon.nhs.uk

Strengthening our services for local children: Being a great local care provider and making a difference to the most vulnerable by creating an integrated local child health service that works seamlessly across primary, community and secondary care and with other local agencies, focused upon improving health and child development outcomes for the children of Lambeth and Southwark. Building our specialist clinical networks: Organising sustainable care for the population and getting care out as close to home as possible, strengthening our leadership and delivery roles in specialist children’s networks so that high quality care is available locally where possible and centrally where necessary. We want to make services as easy as possible to access for referring clinicians, children and their families and improve the way we work with other hospitals across the network, including providing more local network clinics and more local surgery. Grow our children’s hospital to be a fully comprehensive children’s hospital: Provide 24/7 care for the sickest children when they need it, along specialist infrastructure, by developing Evelina London to be a fully comprehensive children’s hospital and the main hub for specialist services in South London and South East England, ensuring children and families can access all services that they require on one site. Our strategic focus will be on right-sizing capacity, developing essential clinical infrastructure and bringing services together and to scale. Increasing our knowledge through research and innovation: An academic clinical service which is at the forefront of developing care for today’s children and tomorrow’s underpinned by integrating the activities of the recently launched Academic Institute for Women and Children’s Health into our clinical pathways to drive a step change in new areas of child health research activity.

The Programme

Demand for Evelina London’s specialist children’s services has grown rapidly since its opening as has the complexity and acuity of patients referred, in line with national trends. This has placed significant pressure on capacity, especially inpatient and critical care beds, theatres and imaging capacity. In 2012 Evelina London embarked on a staged programme of capital development to maintain, improve and expand capacity and update the infrastructure needed to be a world-class fully comprehensive specialist children’s hospital at the hub of a network for South London and the South East England.

PHASE 1 2012/13 TO 2019/20

This phase focused on maximising the use of space and facilities in the existing children’s hospital for clinical activities, enabling more complex, specialist inpatient activity to be delivered. This phase will complete in late Spring / early Summer 2020.

11 Programme Director

PHASE 2 2019/20 TO 2025/26

This phase focuses on expanding capacity for ELCH’s services outside the existing ELCH - into the Triangle Site development, a new Day Surgery and Education Centre and, into a new ambulatory facility being developed by the Trust on the adjacent Royal Street site. This phase will deliver the capacity needed in the medium term to accommodate the future growth of existing specialist services, the development of new services and, subject to the outcome of public consultation, the transfer of specialist children’s services from the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals NHS FT. An Outline Business Case is currently under development to secure capital funding and regulatory approval by NHSEI.

This Programme is ambitious and significant both in its scale (over £400m capital funding in Phase 2) and its complexity, especially given the interdependencies between it and other Trust programmes, including the merger transaction between GSTT and RBH and the Royal Street Development; uncertainties around the timing and outcome of public consultation; and the need to secure formal regulatory approval from NHSEI.

The Trust will plan and deliver an estate that will be fit for purpose for decades to come, by designing “shell and core” buildings which can adapt quickly and easily to different uses, so that we can refit them every 10-15 years, depending on our needs. This is not a one-off exercise, but a sustained strategy of investment and growth that is financially sustainable over the long-term. Healthcare is rapidly changing. In the future the treatments and technologies available to patients may be radically different. We need buildings that are designed with a degree of flexibility and future-proofing. We aim to treble the amount of space across our estate from the current 381,000 sqm to 1.1M sqm by 2050. Space not required by the Trust and King’s Health Partners will be available to research institutions and life science industry partners, including startups and SMEs. Co-location of these uses is central to the development of our MedTech and Biomedical Clusters model.
