Since mid-February 2020, King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been treating patients who have tested positive for COVID-19. These patients are being cared for at King’s College Hospital (Denmark Hill), the Princess Royal University Hospital (Bromley) and Orpington Hospital. Additionally, the Trust has received COVID-19 positive patients that have been transferred from other hospitals in London.

The number of patients who passed away at King’s and tested positive for COVID-19 can be found on the NHS website.

Our thoughts and condolences remain with the families and loved ones of these patients at this difficult time and we would ask everyone to respect their privacy.
