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.


Training, Education and Development

Training, Education and Development

Training and development is an integral part of working for our Trust to ensure we continually equip our staff to provide the highest quality healthcare to the population served.  Our goal is to provide a supportive learning environment that enables employees to succeed and raise the standards in patient care.

We have flexible learning opportunities such as e-learning and work-based learning. Staff have the opportunity to acquire new knowledge and skills to ensure that they are competent and confident to carry out their role effectively within the organisation.

A new state-of the-art centre for conferences, training and education at King’s Mill Hospital opened in April 2011 - part of the £320m redevelopment of the hospital.  it provides high-tech facilities for general and professional training activities and aspires to become a regional centre of educational excellence.
