Emergency services and hospital staff based in SE1 have been honoured by the Mayor of London for their outstanding work carried out after the 7 July terrorist attack.
Dallas Ariotti said: "We continually plan for emergencies, so that when they happen we are best prepared to deal with them. On July 7 everyone pulled together, from doctors and nurses to porters and cleaners, and I am incredibly honoured to accept this award on behalf of all the Trust's 8,500 staff."
During the evening presentations were made to the Metropolitan, City and British Transport Police forces, London Fire Brigade (based on Albert Embankment), the bus and tube services, the London Ambulance and Air Ambulance Services (based in Waterloo Road), as well as the hospitals which received patients from the bombings.
Following the bombs on 7 July, Guy's and St Thomas' received a total of 25 casualties.
