Improving care for patients with heart and lung disease: now and in the future

More in this section

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 & 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.

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.

Between 8 January and 6 February 2019, the partners held a number of ‘listening events’ and conducted a postal and online survey. You can read a report on findings from these activities (PDF 1.57Mb) and the partnership's response to these findings (PDF 169Kb).
