Our standards of care

Child playing with nurse

Our patients are at the heart of everything so we constantly challenge ourselves to improve the way we deliver your care. High quality care starts from the moment you enter the hospital to the time you leave and that means the right levels of nursing and midwifery staff at all times during your stay.

We take an active approach to infection control, and give all the support we can to our wards teams in the fight against MRSA and other hospital acquired infections.

Every patient is important and deserves to be treated with respect and dignity, whatever their age. We offer specialist care from the very young to the very old - and train our staff in safeguarding vulnerable people.

We are monitored annually by the Care Quality Commission (CQC)
and the results are published here on the King's College Hospital website.
