From Monday 29 January, works will start in Kingston’s Maternity Unit to introduce a new maternity triage area, to help improve the experiences of women and shorten the time it takes for them to be assessed.

Works are expected to last between 7 and 10 days, with the new maternity triage area in place from mid-February. 

During the works, people coming to the Maternity Unit will be directed if needed.

Improving triage processes for women coming into the Maternity Unit is one of Kingston Hospital’s Quality Priorities for 2023/24. 

Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust cares for more than half a million patients a year, from across Kingston, Richmond, Elmbridge (Surrey), Merton, Wandsworth and Sutton.
