Response to the Lucy Letby trial

24 August 2023

Following the recent conviction of Lucy Letby, our thoughts are with all the families affected, who have suffered unimaginably because of these shocking crimes.

The Department of Health and Social Care has announced that there will be an independent inquiry into the events at the Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to ensure lessons are learned and steps can continue to be taken across the NHS to keep patients safe.

Here at Kingston Hospital we are absolutely committed to ensuring that any patient, family member, or member of our staff feels safe and confident in speaking up. 

If you have any comments, concerns or questions about the care we are providing, contact our Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) on 0208 934 3993 or email

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