Advice for Patients


Changes to visitor restrictions


To continue to keep our patients and staff safe, from Tuesday 24 March, we will no longer be allowing visitors to any of our adult inpatient wards and we kindly ask family members to instead keep in touch via telephone or video calls, where possible.




Exceptions to visitor restrictions will be made only in the following circumstances:




·       If a patient is receiving end-of-life care


·       Children under 16 on our inpatient wards – one visitor allowed at a time


·       Women in labour in our maternity unit – one birthing partner allowed




We ask for your help in respecting this guidance. Thank you.

Each year, we get thousands of cards and compliments but we realise that from time to time you may have concerns, and we want to know when things are not as they should be. Please be reassured that care will not be adversely affected by any concerns raised with us.

Smoking On-site

From 1 October 2015 Kingston Hospital will be a smokefree site. This means smoking will not be permitted anywhere in our hospital buildings, car parks and grounds. This includes all tobacco products, e-cigarettes and vaping devises. For more information click here.
