FEATURE TEN YEARS OF THE TRUST


A DECADE OF


2007 Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust


2008


THE UK’S FIRST ACADEMIC HEALTH SCIENCE CENTRE Imperial College Healthcare and Imperial College’s School of Medicine partnered to become Imperial College AHSC, the first of its kind in the UK. Imperial AHSC works to improve the quality of life of patients and the public by harnessing the latest medical findings and translating them into real improvements to healthcare education and research.


A MORE ACCURATE WAY TO DIAGNOSE TUBERCULOSIS A study by researchers from Imperial College London and the University of Oxford showed that doctors can determine whether a patient has tuberculosis with 99 per cent accuracy when using a new blood test, ELISpot-Plus, in conjunction with a skin test known as tuberculin skin testing.


Back in 2007, our NHS Trust, Imperial College Healthcare, was formed when Hammersmith Hospital NHS Trust and St Mary’s NHS Trust merged and then integrated with the Imperial College Faculty of Medicine. Since then it has been home to a number of firsts, with our staff working on medical advances that have transformed healthcare across London, the UK and the world. Here are just a few of our innovations from the last decade that have helped to change healthcare and events that we were proud to be part of.


VASCULAR ROBOT IN A WORLD FIRST The Magellan endovascular robot, the only one in the UK, was installed at St Mary’s Hospital and the world’s first robot assisted endovascular aortic aneurysm repair was performed. Since then, over 100 patients have been successfully treated using the robot for a range of problems including stroke and arterial disease. The Trust is at the forefront of vascular robotic research and is central to education and clinical adoption of this technology.
