Patients and the public can get involved at King's by taking part in consultations on large projects that are either led by or affect the hospital.
Details of how you can take part in future consultations will be published here.
We have redeveloped our Emergency Department (ED) into a spacious, state-of-the-art facility that enables us to offer better care and a better experience.
Patients have been involved in the redesign right from the start and continue to play a key part in our plans. The new-look ED has:
- a larger resuscitation (resus) area
- more beds in the Majors area
- a larger Clinical Decision Unit (CDU)
- a new entrance away from the main road.
King's was instrumental in making Denmark Hill an accessible station. After several years of campaigning alongside our Governors, Members and local elected representatives, a £6.3 million refurbishment means the station has much better facilities, including:
- a new footbridge
- lifts to all platforms
- a new ticket office on the Champion Park side of the station.
We campaigned with local stakeholders to save the South London Line (SLL), which ran between Victoria and London Bridge, and was a key transport link for King’s patients and staff.
Although the SLL train service was withdrawn, Transport for London (TfL) reviewed the service in response to our campaigning. The review confirmed the need to fill gaps in train services. The loss of the SLL has been eased by the introduction of frequent London Overground trains between Clapham Junction and Surrey Quays.
King's Governors continue to meet with Network Rail and TfL to identify ways in which future rail franchises can ensure Denmark Hill retains key train services.
