Get involved!

At the SLCSN, we firmly believe that patients are the centre of healthcare and they drive our improvement efforts.

To ensure that patients, the public and healthcare professionals are connected, we have developed several groups to work together to advance cardiac and stroke care for all South London residents.

By listening to patients, we can better shape future healthcare services, in alignment with the NHS goals: preventative, people-centred and productive.

For patients

Patients who have experienced cardiac or stroke conditions are specialists in their experience, able to give informed opinions on ways to make services even better.
