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.


Your first day

First days in a new role can make people a little nervous.  All new colleagues attend our Welcome Day (Orientation Day). It is a full-day comprehensive programme that will equip you with a range of knowledge and information that will tell you about the Trust, our vision and values along with some important training sessions.

You will also get to meet other new colleagues joining the Trust from a range of different roles, so don't worry, you won't be on your own.

Here is a map of King's Mill Hospital. Please refer to your welcome day information for your location and start time. 

Here is our colleague handbook. You may find it useful to read this before you attend your welcome day.
