Kingston Hospital took delivery of an additional 20 recliner chairs during February 2021 to enable more of our medical, surgical and care of the elderly patients to sit out of bed in appropriate supportive seating on a regular basis. Doing so not only helps to reduce their length of stay but also improves the patient’s quality of life and independence.

These recliner chairs, funded with the support of our community, are in addition to the 20 Kingston Hospital Charity previously acquired for the elderly care, orthopaedic and medical wards, to address a critical lack of appropriate seating for patients.
