We know that members of the public, and our patients and visitors, have experiences, skills and knowledge they can share with us, which can help support our organisation to continuously improve services and better meet the needs of our local communities, and the people we serve.

Please see below a list of our current opportunities, including: studies, projects, and evaluations of services, which you may want to become involved in. 

Study to help improve end of life care for adult inpatients, and those important to them, at our hospitals

This August we undertook a study, which was funded by Imperial Health Charity, to speak to people who could talk about their experiences of a loved one receiving end-of-life care. The study aims to help us gather insights which will in turn help us to improve the last days and hours of life for people at our hospitals.

Unfortunately, this involvement opportunity is now closed. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to speak with us. There might be a future opportunity to get involved in the second stage of this study - if you are interested please email your details to and we will be in touch.

You can also continue to visit these web pages to hear about any future involvement opportunities.

Patient communications reference group

Our patient communications reference group provides feedback via email about letters to patients, web content and patient information leaflets. To find out more or to register your interest please contact

Digital reference group

Many of us already use smartphones and computers to stay in touch with friends and family, do the shopping and book holiday. But using this technology to interact with our hospitals is still relatively rare. We are adopting some of these communication methods as part of our correspondence and seek input to get it right. 

The digital reference group provides feedback and guidance via email about digital initiatives at the Trust, including the Care Information Exchange.

Our digital reference group gives you the opportunity to influence how we use digital technology in healthcare and how we communicate and engage with our patients.

This group meets face-to-face every three months with virtual communication between meetings.

If you are interested in joining this group, please email Paul Harrison, electronic patient records communications manager.

Additional opportunities

In addition to the opportunities listed above, there are a number of small patient groups that help shape individual services, as well as some short-term project groups or events that may be of interest to you. If you are interested in helping shape our services and the way we run our services, but you don’t see an opportunity here, email to register your interest.
