  • This document is a personal view of the current issues of acute care in London based on the author's experience of working in the south east segment of inner London. It is a view informed by impressions gained in working in five different London teaching and postgraduate hospitals and the local communities they serve. These are Guy's Hospital, St Thomas' Hospital, King's College Hospital, Lewisham Hospital, South Western Hospital and Dulwich Hospital. The author's experience also included working in a variety of smaller general hospitals and large mental hospitals, and being closely associated with a voluntary organisation providing care for elderly people and people with disabilities in inner London whose perspective on health services is very different from that of health service staff. It was prepared to inform the work of the King's Fund Commission on the Future of Acute Services in London. It is being published in advance of the Commission's Strategy for London in order to inform debate about the future of health care in the capital, but should not be interpreted as anticipating the recommendations of the Commission's final report.
