Launch of Virtual Visiting Volunteer Service

17 February 2023

Kingston Hospital has recently launched a new virtual visiting service, connecting patients with family members or friends who would otherwise be unable to come into the hospital.

Trained volunteers are available to facilitate video calls between patients and loved ones, by bringing an iPad to the patient’s bedside.

How to schedule a call:

Send an email to with the patient’s name, date of birth, and your contact details, or speak to a member of the virtual visiting team on 020 8934 3053.

A member of the team will then get in contact to arrange the call.

This service runs Monday to Friday. To arrange a call for the same day, please send details before midday.

Tell us how we are doing we'd love to have your opinion
