How are you feeling today?
Living with health conditions can be hard and affect you in different ways. By answering some questions about your health and wellbeing, your health team can get a better understanding of how you are feeling and coping.
IMPARTS: Integrating mental and physical healthcare: research, training and services
Services across Guy’s and St Thomas’ and King’s College Hospitals use questionnaires to find out how you are feeling. The information you give helps us to give you the best possible care – for your mental and physical health.
This questionnaire is part of the IMPARTS programme. It is funded by King’s Health Partners to bring together mind and body care.
e-IMPARTS: Accessing the questionnaire remotely and securely on your personal device
With e-IMPARTS, you can complete the questionnaire online on your own personal device (for example, your smartphone, laptop or tablet) up to 24 hours before your appointment. A link to the questionnaire will be sent to you in your text message appointment reminder.
Your answers will be sent to the healthcare professional you have an appointment with. The information from the questionnaire is confidential and used to help your clinician give you with the best possible care. We may ask you to complete the questionnaire again when you have another appointment with us, so we can check how things are changing for you.
You can also complete the questionnaire in-person, using a tablet in clinic if you chose to do so.
