Send a message to a loved one at Kingston Hospital

7 May 2020

Please note: that the message to a loved one service is Monday to Friday and any messages received over the weekend will be delivered on Monday afternoon.

Our new ‘Message to a loved one’ service enables relatives and close friends to send messages of love and support to patients.

At a time when visiting is restricted and the need for connection between families and friends is even greater, our messaging service provides a quick and simple way to tell someone that you’re thinking of them and to brighten their day with messages, photographs and memories shared.

Who is it aimed at?

Anyone who has a close friend or relative who is a patient at Kingston Hospital can write a letter of love and support via   

How does it work?

Relatives and close friends can send an email to before 12pm for their message to be delivered direct to their loved one at Kingston Hospital on the same day. Messages received after 12pm will be delivered the following day. 

For messages to be passed on to a loved one, you will need to include the following information with your message:

  • The patient’s full name
  • Your relationship to the patient e.g. daughter or neighbour
  • Either the patient’s date of birth OR the first line of their address

This information will allow us to verify that you know the person well.

Due to capacity, unfortunately we are not able to pass messages back from patients to friends and relatives. 

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