The acquisition of the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) including two theatres at Sidcup, and re-opening the orthopaedic hub at Orpington as a focused elective site has enlarged the department by over a quarter allowing for an increased diversity of ideas and opportunities.It incorporates all major specialties including Cardio-thoracic, Liver, Paediatrics, and Neurological Surgery, as well as Chronic and Acute Pain Relief.
There is also an active Liver Transplantation program for which King’s is world famous.

The Department is innovative and forward looking and has enjoyed considerable expansion in the past few years. There is a rotational programme for Core and Specialist Trainee Registrars within the South Thames Deanery. There are also a number of research posts (both medical and non-medical) associated with the Pain Research Group and the Liver Transplantation Programme.The department is part of the Urgent and Planned Care Division which comprises: Acute & Emergency Care, Post-Acute & Planned Medicine + Outpatients, Therapy, Rehabilitation & Allied Clinical Services, Pharmacy, Dental, Planned Surgical, Ophthalmology & Optometry, Theatres & Anaesthetics and Women’s Health.
