A new intensive care unit for Kingston Hospital - have your say!
We are really excited that planning is underway to build
a new intensive care unit (ICU) within Kingston Hospital.
We will be running two face-to-face information
sessions on Thursday 25 May in the Education Centre
at Kingston Hospital (Level 5, Kingston Surgical Centre)
at 12pm and 6.30pm.
There will be an opportunity to hear about our planning,
view initial designs for the new building and hear from
hospital staff and designers about the benefits of the project.
There will also be an opportunity to provide feedback
and to have your say.
Listen to our Health Talks podcast - normalising conversations
In the latest episode of our Health Talks podcast, Dr Catherine
Millington-Sanders (GP in Kingston and End of Life Care Clinical
Lead for Kingston and Richmond, and South West London), is
joined by Magic Radio afternoon show presenter, Emma B,
to discuss their experiences of loss, grief and how we can all
get better at talking about dying.
Wolverton Centre featured in 'Youth Out Loud!' sexual health film
As part of their Digital Youth Projects, Youth Out Loud! – a group of people aged 13-17 working with Healthwatch Kingston – recently created a sexual health information film which features the Wolverton Centre at Kingston Hospital.
Nic Kane, Chief Nurse for Kingston Hospital and Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare, said: “We have been really pleased to work with Healthwatch and Youth Out Loud! on this fantastic film. We hope this will be useful to young people in our communities, enabling them to feel able to talk more openly about sexual health issues.”
Quality Priorities for 2023/24
Each year, with advice from our stakeholders and
staff, we select quality priorities which determine the
areas of improvement work that we will formally report
on in our quality account – the annual public report
on the quality of the services we provide.
Thank you to everyone who shared their views on
this year’s priorities, via our online survey earlier this
year. The results from this survey were analysed by
a selection panel and used alongside a range of
other factors to rank and then select three joint
quality priorities for Kingston Hospital and Hounslow
and Richmond Community Healthcare (HRCH),
and an independent priority for each Trust –
making five priorities in total.
