In August 2018, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated the overall quality of care provided at Kingston Hospital as ‘Outstanding’, following its latest inspection. As well as recognising the dedication and caring commitment of hospital staff, it also reflected our crucial role in raising money for equipment, comforts, research, amenities and staff support that are above and beyond the scope of NHS funding.
Everyone involved with Kingston Hospital acknowledges that this is not a time to stand still, but to move forward and build on the CQC’s ‘Outstanding’ rating. For us this means raising the funds needed to: support high quality clinical research; help transform parts of the hospital estate that require additional investment to create patient-centred spaces, designed to deliver the best quality of care possible; and to purchase the latest medical equipment for better diagnosis and treatment.
Currently our focus is on two projects which we would love your help with – information on each of the projects is provided below.
