KPA Survey



Below are the results of a survey the KPA committee conducted back in June 2011. The results demonstrate that we, as a charity, need to promote our work as much as possible to the staff and patients of Guy’ s and St Thomas’ hospitals.

Thank you to all the patients and staff that took time to complete this survey.
