A new garden and meeting space for staff was officially opened at Kingston Hospital at the start of October, by Chair of Kingston Hospital and HRCH, Sukhvinder Kaur-Stubbs.
The renovations were funded by Kingston Hospital Charity and made possible thanks to the generosity of The Friends of Kingston Hospital, The London Full Gospel Church in Raynes Park, The Victoria Foundation and a gift kindly left by Karen Hindle in her will.
Sukhvinder was joined by Jo Farrar, some of the charity’s supporters, and colleagues from across the hospital’s Health and Wellbeing Committee, to celebrate the opening.
Nic Kane, Chief Nurse and Chair of Kingston Hospital’s Health and Wellbeing Committee, said: “The wellbeing of our staff is really important to us here at Kingston Hospital. In response to what we have been hearing from colleagues around the value of having more meeting spaces and places to get together and to take their breaks, we are pleased to have been able to officially open this relaxing and accessible outdoor space. Thank you to Kingston Hospital Charity and to those who have so generously contributed to the project, for making this wonderful new garden possible.”
