Overview

Kettering General Hospital Foundation Trust provides acute hospital services for the people of North Northamptonshire and beyond. We were authorised to operate as a foundation trust in November 2008 and since then have developed a public membership of over 5000 people – for further details of how to join our Trust visit www.kgh.nhs.uk

Our aim is to be the hospital that

  • local people choose
  • delivers really excellent services
  • treats people well
  • has a reputation for safety and operates efficiently.

We are committed to constantly improve the services we provide and over the last five years we have invested significantly in our estate and opened a Treatment Centre offering day case surgery, a cardiac care centre from where we provide a county wide cardiac service, refurbished ward accommodation and developed a new outpatient facility in East Northamptonshire. In April 2013 we opened a new £30 million ward block called the Foundation Wing which provides additional Critical Care facilities and paediatric inpatient and outpatient accommodation.
