INTRODUCTION

Thank you for taking time to take part in this survey, which is being conducted by Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust and King’s Health Partners (King’s College London and Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts) to help us develop proposals for the way heart and lung services are provided for you and your family now and in the future.

We are keen to understand what you think about the heart and lung care that you and your family receive now and what you think about the proposals we have developed so far. The results of this survey will be independently analysed, and a report produced in February 2019.

About the NHS trusts involved in this work
Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust is the largest specialist heart and lung centre in the UK and among the largest in Europe. We work from two main sites – Royal Brompton Hospital in Chelsea, West London, and Harefield Hospital, near Uxbridge

King’s Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC) is a pioneering collaboration between King’s College London and Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts.  We work together to make sure that the lessons from research are used more swiftly, to provide better and more joined up physical and mental health care for people.

Who should complete the survey?
This survey is for adults, children and young people who receive heart and lung care at any of the hospitals listed above. Carers or parents of a patient can also complete the survey on their own or together with the patient.  If you are the parent or carer of a young patient, please encourage and help them to complete the survey too.
