The psychology team at Evelina London and the Evelina Hospital School are conducting a study to explore experiences of school for children and young people attending Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

The team are asking parents of children aged between 4-18 years to take part by completing a survey to find out what impact a health condition has on their child’s school life.

Sarah Evans, Assistant Psychologist says: “With the results of the study, we hope to increase understanding of the challenges children with health conditions face at school as well as highlight examples of the support they have received in education.”

How to take part

If you’re a parent of a child aged between 4-18 years being treated by Evelina London Children’s Hospital, the team would love to hear from you.

Information is being gathered via a short survey about your child’s experiences of school. You are under no obligation to take part and you may skip any questions that you do not wish to answer and stop the survey at any time. Only one parent needs to complete the survey for each child. The survey will close on Sunday 14 August.
