Condition checks

We can assist with requests about the condition of patients being treated here at King’s. These are known as condition checks. However, the following rules and guidelines apply:

  • We place great emphasis on patient confidentiality. We will not give any information about a patient without permission from either the patient or their next of kin.
  • If permission is granted, only a brief indication of the progress of the patient will be given. For example, comfortable, stable, or critical.
  • If the patient or their next of kin has specifically requested that no information is released to the media about their condition, their wishes will always be respected.
  • To carry out a condition check we need the patient’s first and last name and their date of birth.
