Health Foundry is London’s first digital health incubator and a pilot in how to bring together actors across London’s diverse health eco-system and supporting them to create and adopt scalable digital health solutions.
Health Foundry is powered by Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity, a catalyst for innovation in health, who commissioned Architecture 00 to create the strategy for and design, build and operate the incubator on its behalf.
Since opening in September 2016 Health Foundry has supported 100+ organisations working in digital health and hosted over 100 industry events. We’ve provided 62 one-to-one sessions with industry experts and facilitated a series of collaborations and pilots with actors across the local health system.
As a live action piece of research Health Foundry aims to understand the current and future support needs of the digital health sector and ultimately scale our offer and impact through the next iteration of Health Foundry.
This report presents an overview of our achievements and lessons learned to date. We warmly welcome your thoughts and feedback and would love to invite you down for a cuppa when you’re in the area. Please do get in touch with the 00 team - firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com

00 were commissioned to carry out a study of Crystal Palace, including the town centres of Upper Norwood, Anerley and Penge. The focus of the study was to document and share the richness of the area, and explore opportunities for regeneration built on existing riches, ideas, and proposals uncovered. Crucially, the study was a first step towards building up an improved understanding of the area for the officers of the five boroughs it spans, and towards a framework for enhanced coordination of projects, priorities and investments. The full report available here.
The shortlist for the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) London 2015 Awards has been published and we're pleased to announce The Foundry (Social Justice Centre) has been shortlisted for an award with the results coming out on Monday 18th May.
