Patient support services

Healthcare professionals talkingWe know your wellbeing depends not only on medical care, but the help and support you receive throughout your treatment. We have dedicated staff to support you and links with patient groups who can also help.

Support in difficult circumstances: PALS

Our Patient Advice and Liaison Service is here to provide support, assistance and advice to patients, families and carers. They can help you if you are having difficulties, need translation services or want to complain about your treatment.

Patient and family experience and involvement

The patient experience and involvement team supports staff to improve services, and provide opportunities and information for patients and their families wanting to get involved

Support from independent groups

Sometimes our patients need help and advice from people who have already experienced what they are going through.  We have strong links with independent support groups that can offer you help beyond your medical treatment.

Free guest wifi service

The Trust offers a free guest wifi service for use by our patients and their families and carers.

Visitor accommodation

We have some accommodation available to relatives or visitors close to both hospitals. The demand for our visitor accommodation is high, so we ask that you make a reservation through the accommodation office. For more information, see our visitor accommodation pages for Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital.
