Kingston Hospital Charity
Kingston Hospital Charity supports Kingston Hospital by raising the monies needed to: fund 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; purchase the latest medical equipment for better diagnosis and treatment; and recognise the dedication and caring commitment of staff by supporting their development and wellbeing.
Charitable support is playing an increasingly important role in enhancing the care provided across the hospital. Some recent examples of projects made possible thanks to the generosity of individuals and organisations in our community include:
- Piloting a 12 month specialist bereavement counselling service for women who have suffered a still birth or death of a new born baby
- Purchasing a state-of-the-art Holmium Laser to ensure the hospital is at the forefront of providing the best in class treatment for a range of conditions including enlarged prostate glands, bladder cancer and kidney stones
- Development of the Maxwell Thorne Haematology Day Unit, a dedicated space for haematology patients receiving chemotherapy
- Specialist recliner chairs for the hospital’s elderly care wards to ensure all patients can sit out of bed every day, improving quality of life, independence and dignity, while helping to get patients home
