Quality & GovernanceQuality & Governance provides a framework for KIMS Hospital to ensure the delivery of safe, effective and high-quality healthcare. It also dictates our obligations to our teams, the public and other providers including how we store, process and protect hospital data.
Compliments, comments & complaints
We believe that feedback of all kinds is incredibly important to maintaining and improving the high level of care we strive for.
How we keep you safe
As the largest independent hospital in Kent, we will provide safe, outstanding quality care to you at every stage of your journey from diagnosis to recovery.
Statement of purpose
We are required to register as a ‘provider’ with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and as such provide them with a clear statement of required information including which services are available at KIMS Hospital; this is known as the Statement of Purpose.
In accordance with the Health Act 2009, KIMS Hospital provides a Quality Account for each financial year. The Quality Account presents a picture of our hospital’s performance over the reporting period.
