Current opportunities to have your say
Opportunities to share your views about proposed service changes at the Trust will be listed here.
Emergency Department Redevelopment (2008)
Patients were involved in the redesign of the Emergency Department at Denmark Hill. Changes included:
- 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.
Denmark Hill Station Redevelopment (2013)
After several years of campaigning alongside our Governors, Members and local elected representatives, a £6.3 million investment was secured to improve Denmark Hill station, including:
- a new footbridge
- lifts to all platforms
- a new ticket office on the Champion Park side of the station.
The Trust regularly works with local community groups and other organisations to improve public transport links to our hospitals.
In the past, this has included campaigning to save the South London Line (SLL). While the train service was withdrawn, Transport for London (TfL) reviewed the service in response to our campaigning and introduced a more frequent service between Clapham Junction and Surrey Quays.
The Trust continues to link in with Network Rail and TfL to ensure that local transport needs for patients, visitors and staff are considered when planning any future changes to train services and facilities.
Designing Heart and Lung Care – Now and in the future (January 2019)
Since November 2017, King’s Health Partners (KHP) have been working with the Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust on proposals to change how care and treatment is provided for adults and children with heart and lung disease.
More than 100 patients, carers and representatives of charities attended events held at three hospital sites, with their feedback helping to inform the ongoing development of the partnership’s proposals. They brought a wide range of helpful insights and views to the discussion. For more information, read the full report on the findings from the patient and public engagement activities.
Helipad Night Flights at Denmark Hill (March 2019)
We responded to individual questions raised via the consultation and the feedback was used to shape our planning application submitted to Lambeth Council.
Permission was granted to extend the operating hours of the helipad at King's College Hospital, Denmark Hill. Air ambulances can now land at night as well as during daylight hours. The new development will ensure patients receive the same level of timely care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
