Visiting update

From 1 January 2022, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend adult in-patient visiting in order to help protect our vulnerable patients. Please visit here for more information. 

Patient appointments

As we continue to see a rise in our urgent care admissions, a surge in admissions of Covid positive patients, and workforce shortages created by Covid isolation, some appointments for planned care may need to be delayed.

We will continue to prioritise urgent and emergency care and cancer treatments and we will do everything we can to avoid delaying care. If we need to take the difficult decision to delay appointments, we will contact affected patients directly to let them know. 

If you do not hear from us, please attend as requested in your appointment letter.


Private Patients

King’s Mill Hospital actively welcomes private patients.

We offer a range of surgical, medical and diagnostic procedures for the consideration of private patients.

As a Foundation Trust, we can provide our private patients with procedures which are not available under the NHS, although there are at the present some restrictions in place on the amount we can do in any year.

Plans are being drafted to extend this private patients’ service to more fully meet the needs of any patients who may be in a position to choose this option.
