Hinduja Group and King’s College London Forge New Healthcare Partnership

The Hinduja Group and King’s College London have announced a groundbreaking partnership aimed at enhancing healthcare outcomes in both India and the UK. The collaboration, which involves King’s College London, Guy’s & St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, the Hinduja Foundation UK, and Mumbai’s P.D. Hinduja Hospital & Medical Research Centre, seeks to bolster research capacity, provide training opportunities, and offer scholarships for Indian students.

This strategic alliance will establish the Hinduja-King’s Health Partners Academy, focusing on developing new technologies to tackle global healthcare challenges. It aims to strengthen the ties between the UK and India while advancing research in healthcare engineering, clinical innovation, and advanced training.

During a recent visit to the London Institute for Healthcare Engineering (LIHE), UK Deputy Prime Minister Oliver Dowden emphasized the significance of this collaboration in enhancing research capacity and fostering innovation in healthcare engineering and clinical practices. A memorandum of agreement signed at LIHE last week will facilitate training in clinical and non-clinical courses, research capacity building, and executive education for health professionals in both countries.

A generous philanthropic contribution from the Hinduja Foundation UK will support health engineering research and clinical innovation by providing scholarships for Indian students in biomedical engineering and imaging sciences. This initiative is part of the Hinduja-King’s Health Partners Academy, leveraging King’s College London’s expertise in biomedical technologies, health data, and artificial intelligence.

UK Health Secretary Victoria Atkins praised the partnership for its potential to improve patient care and strengthen the India-UK Health Partnership. The collaboration is a tribute to the late Srichand P. Hinduja, former chairman of the Hinduja Group, whose philanthropic legacy continues to inspire.

G.P. Hinduja, chairman of the Hinduja Group and Foundation, expressed his commitment to the long-term partnership, aiming to bring positive healthcare and research outcomes to both India and the UK. Professor Shitij Kapur, Vice-Chancellor and President of King’s College London, emphasized the partnership’s goal of supporting the next generation of healthcare professionals and biomedical technical talent in both countries.

Prokar Dasgupta, Professor of Surgery at King’s Health Partners, highlighted the academy’s role in providing training, education, and research opportunities while strengthening Indo-UK friendship. The Hinduja Foundation UK, established in 1989, has a history of supporting projects in education, health, and interfaith understanding in the UK, following the philanthropic principles of Hinduja Group founder Parmanand Deepchand Hinduja.

In conclusion, the collaboration between the Hinduja Group and King’s College London marks a significant step towards advancing healthcare research and training, fostering innovation, and strengthening bilateral ties between India and the UK. Through scholarships, research initiatives, and training programs, the partnership aims to shape the future of healthcare and benefit communities in both countries.
