Kingston Hospital becomes a Foundation Trust
We are delighted to announce that the Hospital has been authorised as an NHS Foundation Trust from the 1st May and will now be known as Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
The Hospital is the first acute Trust to be licensed since April 2012 and the first to become a Foundation Trust (FT) in south West London. Becoming an FT is a seal of approval for the high quality patient care we are all committed to delivering at Kingston Hospital and we are now looking forward to planning an exciting future for the Trust.
Our Council of Governors will now be fully established and we are particularly looking forward to working with them to ensure we listen to the needs of the communities and patients they represent when planning our future and developing our services.
We would like to thank our local community, patients and staff with our FT application over the years.
