Trust Harmonix

Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Staff Community Choir

Trust Harmonix is the staff community choir of Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.

Established by Breathe Arts Health Research in 2017 and led by esteemed choir leader Mike King, Trust Harmonix was established to give staff a creative outlet to help combat stress, to promote health and wellbeing through singing and to create a sense of community amongst NHS colleagues who may not necessarily encounter each other in the course of their day-to-day work.

Hospitals can be quite stressful so it’s nice to be able to come and relax, get things off your chest. But what’s great about it is that everyone is on an equal footing no one really knows if they’re a consultant or a nurse… its all about bringing unity to the Trust. - Mike King, Choir Leader

There is now this huge focus on mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. Employers are starting to promote the idea that you should do something that makes you feel better. For me the choir is a safe place to be, a very inspiring place - Trust Harmonix Member
