Event description

Description

We are seeking the views and experiences of patients who have undergone cardiac surgery (for example, coronary artery bypass surgery, valve repairs and replacements and surgery on the aorta) at St Bartholomew's Hospital since May 2015, and their carers and families, regarding the recovery process after surgery. We are particularly interested in hearing what aspects of the recovery were most important to you, what areas of recovery did and did not meet expectations, what you wished you would have known before surgery, and what improvements to the service would you recommend. We aim to use the information to prioritise service improvements and identify research priorities in order to continually improve patient care and experience at St Bartholomew's Hospital. We also wish to seek patients, carers or family members that might be interested in working in partnership with us to take these forward.

A sandwich lunch, tea & coffee will be provided at 13.30 for you to enjoy throughout the afternoon.


FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Due to being in central London there are unfortunately limited car parking space, however, there is good access to public transport. Our nearest tubes are St Pauls, Farringdon and the Barbican and there is a close overland service from Farringdon, Kings Cross and Liverpool Street. Buses also drop you outside the Hospital entrances.
