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.


Psychological Wellbeing Resources

This webpage has been created by Clinical Psychologists at King’s Mill Hospital who specialise in supporting people living with physical health conditions. The Clinical Psychology department is comprised of Clinical Psychologists, Trainee Clinical Psychologists and Psychology Placement Students. Clinical Psychology support is available for patients under Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in the following departments based within King’s Mill Hospital:

  • Cancer Services (please click here to visit the self-help website specifically for people living with cancer)
  • Stroke for Early Supported Discharge and Stroke Ward
  • Integrated Sexual Health Service
  • Pain Management

It is not unusual to find it difficult to cope with a diagnosis of a physical health problem (whether long term or short term) and to find it hard to adjust to life afterwards. This website offers psychological resources for adult patients. This includes information leaflets, audio clips and videos which can be easily downloaded. You can find a range of psychological wellbeing resources on the tabs at the left-hand side of this page. This includes self-help resources to manage:

Whilst the resources have been designed for patients with a physical health condition, they can be used by anybody, including carers and family members. We hope you find them useful. Please speak to a member of your team should you require further information.
