When we first produced a map of London’s NHS in 2013, it coincided with celebrations to mark 65 years of the NHS. Two years on, the health service has seen considerable change. We have counted up 36 Trusts in all, with a total of 80 sites across the capital. This compares with 40 Trusts and 86 sites in 2013.

NHS leadership has also changed and Simon Stevens the chief executive is clear on the challenge facing every Trust – there is a funding gap and fixing this requires a transformation in the way organisations deliver care. The next two years will be a crucial time and London’s NHS is sure to look different in 2018.

For now, on one side of our latest map, we once again show all the NHS trusts in the capital, their head offices, contact details and where they are physically based. On the other side, our specialist partners MES has produced a map showing membership for the FT provider sector in England. This shows the age, gender and ethnicity of people signed up as members of their local NHS Foundations Trust in four regions across the country. Interestingly, the best represented region of the four is the North of England with FT members representing 2.62% of the population. This compares to 1.62% of the London population who are FT members. If you need assistance with analysing your data further please feel to contact MES.
