Help assess the care environment at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust


Would you like to join a team of patient assessors who help ensure Guy's and St Thomas' maintain a high quality care environment?

Every year, all hospitals are required to undertake a Patient-Led Assessment of the Care Environment – known as PLACE.

Teams of staff and patients carry out assessments for standards of cleanliness, quality of food, and how well patients are treated with dignity and respect. They visit Guy's and St Thomas' hospital sites and inpatient sites in the community (Pulross Intermediate Care Centre, Minnie Kidd House and the Amputee Rehabilitation Unit at Lambeth Community Care Centre).

The Trust is looking for new patient assessors who have experience of using Trust services. You could be a:
• Patient, relative, visitor, advocate or carer
• Member of local Healthwatch, a local resident, or a voluntary sector representative

The training and assessments will take place over one full day between March and May. NHS England aims to give Guy's and St Thomas' 8-10 weeks notice of each visit.
