Staff from King’s College Hospital will visit shopping centres, supermarkets and libraries in Bromley to outline proposals for the takeover of the Princess Royal University Hospital next week.
Members of the public will be able to ask questions about proposed increases to services, which include more inpatient beds, a new outpatient facility and specialist services.
The first display will be at Biggin Hill Library, in Church Lane, on May 10 from 8am to 6pm, followed by Tesco, in Orpington, three days later from 11am to 7pm.
Details on how PRUH patients can pre-register to become a member of the King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust will also be provided, in order to have a say on services at both hospitals.
Tim Smart, King’s chief executive, said: “We are keen to share our plans for the PRUH with the public and we hope the people will take time to come and find out more about the future of their local hospital.”
The acquisition of the PRUH was recommended by the Trust Special Administator as part of a wider review into challenges faced by South London Healthcare Trust.
