Kingston Hospital NHS Trust is the local hospital in Kingston. It is a district general hospital based approximately 12 miles from central London. The hospital supports some 320,000 people in the surrounding area including the boroughs of Kingston, Richmond, Roehampton, Putney and East Elmbridge.

The hospital has 520 beds and directly employs some 2,600 staff with another 300 staff employed by contractors but working on behalf of the Trust.

It provides a full range of diagnostic and treatment services and has a national reputation for innovative developments in healthcare, particularly in 'patient-focused' care, day surgery and maternity services.

In 2009 the hospital opened a new cancer unit, the Sir William Rous Unit, and its new Kingston Surgical Centre. The hospital is also currently refurbishing its medical wards.
