Kettering General Hospital is a NHS hospital in Kettering, Northamptonshire, England. The hospital was founded in 1897 and became a separate NHS Trust in 1994.[1] The hospital covers North Northamptonshire (Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, Rushden and other towns and villages in the area).

Foundation Trust

Kettering General achieved Foundation Trust status in November 2008, which is a fundamental part of the current NHS reform program. The Foundation Trust has outpatient clinics in Corby, Wellingborough and Rushden. The trust (including Kettering General) has 600 beds, 17 theaters and employs more than 3,200 staff.[2]

David Sissling, former Chief Executive of the NHS in Wales was appointed as the new chief executive of the Trust in January 2014 replacing Lorene Read.[3]

New East Northamptonshire outpatients

The trust is planning a new outpatient centre in Irthlingborough, East Northamptonshire. Planning permission has been provided to develop the plans. The new centre would provide around 40,000 outpatient appointments per year, which most of the appointments would be moved from the main hospital at Kettering. The hospital's plan is also the move clinics which are currently provided (as of October 2009) at Rushden Memorial Clinic which is an old Victorian building and can only accommodate 8,000 appointment per year.[4] The new building is hoped to be opened by late 2010.[5]
