Why King’s Commercial?
King’s set up its commercial arm when it became a Foundation Trust. The initial focus was on marketing the Trust as a market-leader in IT systems – such as patient costing software – and related consultancy work.
Since then, King’s Commercial has expanded its activities to explore local and international opportunities and to provide expertise in consulting, healthcare management, education and training, recruitment and clinical unit commissioning.
We now have a major involvement in a number of leading outsourced services and joint ventures worldwide, including Viapath and King’s College Hospital Clinics Abu Dhabi, and have a raft of projects in the pipeline.
