Current opportunities to have your say
Designing Heart and Lung Care - Now and in the future (January 2019)
Information for you about proposals to improve care for patients with heart and lung disease: now and in the future
About the Partnership
Since November 2017, King’s Health Partners (the Academic Health Sciences Centre comprising Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts and King’s College London) have been working with Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust on a new partnership to revolutionise cardiovascular (heart) and respiratory (lung and breathing) services for patients.
The partners have a vision to create a global powerhouse for heart and lung medicine and research in London, providing the best possible patient care and experience.
This envisages the development of a new purpose-built clinical academic facility on the St Thomas’ Hospital and Evelina London Children’s Hospital site.
The partnership would also provide substantial investment to other sites within the partnership, to support the provision of high-quality care in a new network for patients across the south of England.
Sharing your views with us
We are developing proposals to improve heart and lung care in London and southern England and we would like to hear your views. This is an opportunity to design care that will work for you, and other patients like you. We have an ambition to provide care that is world leading, delivering innovations to improve the lives of every patient, both today and in to the future. There are really new parts to what we want to offer – including ambulatory care and support to those delivering care in your local area, and it is important we get this right. Your input is really important because small things can make a big difference; we need your views so that we know what makes a difference and shape services to meet your needs.

Helipad Night Flights at Denmark Hill
The Trust has applied to Lambeth Council for permission to extend the operating hours of the helipad at King's College Hospital, Denmark Hill.
Our submission can be found here.
Emergency Department Redevelopment (2008)
Patients were involved in the redesign. 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 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 these 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 Transport for London to ensure that local transport needs for patients, visitors and staff are considered when planning any future changes to train services and facilities.
