Important information: The use of face coverings and gloves when coming to into hospital

People infected with COVID-19 can have very mild or no respiratory symptoms (asymptomatic) and can transmit the virus to others without being aware of it.
 
Following recommend recommendations from the World Health organisation, and in line with UK government guidance, we're introducing new measures at KGH to keep visitors, patients and staff safe. From Monday 15 June 2020 you will need to wear a face covering at all times inside our hospital. Find out more

Please remove your gloves - Good hand hygiene is one of the keys to defeating Coronavirus

  • If you are wearing gloves when attending our clinics you will be asked to remove them
  • We will ask that you wash your hands with soap or sanitiser
  • You may sanitise your hands and reapply your gloves before you leave

Improving Patients Experience

seven day service
Patient experience and involvement are fundamental components to the provision of high quality care and a continuously evolving culture of patient centred care within the NHS.  Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is committed to providing high quality care to the individuals, communities and the population that we serve. This aim is clear within our Trust Strategy and is described further within our Quality Strategy in which we have pledged to ‘Put Patients First’ ensuring the patients voice is at the centre of all we do.
 
The promotion of a positive patient experience is the responsibility of everyone at Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust from our housekeeping & estates staff, clinical teams to our Executive Board. This commitment is supported by the Patient Experience Team together with volunteers and our Governors.
 
Not only do we work with our patients, their carers and family members but we also work with independent bodies such as Healthwatch and Young Healthwatch Northamptonshire to monitor and make improvements to our services.
