Welcome to BMI Coombe Wing
 Whatever your reason for coming to Coombe Wing you can trust us to look after you.
 We care about you and the way you feel both physically and emotionally.

 Coombe Wing is the Private Patient Unit of Kingston Hospital NHS Trust, caring for private patients since
opening in September 1994. Coombe Wing is a 22 room multi-specialty unit with en-suite facilities, along with
an outpatient and a physiotherapy department. Coombe Wing has been part of BMI Healthcare, the UK’s largest
 independent healthcare provider, since October 2009.

 Coombe Wing is able to draw on the expertise of experienced consultants who choose to run their private practice
 here. This specialist expertise is supported by caring and professional medical staff, with dedicated nursing teams
providing care within a friendly and comfortable environment.

"Nearly 98% of BMI’s patients have told us that they would recommend their BMI
 hospital to friends and family." *

High quality care and support
Our policy is always to provide you with the best care. That’s why we continually invest in staff, facilities and

From the moment you contact the hospital our trained staff are here to help. They will provide information and
reassurance about your diagnosis and treatment. Whether you are coming to hospital as an outpatient or being
admitted, everything is designed to help put you at your ease.

Our nursing team and a full range of general and specialist medical services will ensure you receive the best
clinical care we can provide and the critical care team is always on hand to provide support if needed.

Infection prevention is our priority
Coombe Wing has a rigorous system of infection prevention and control policies, surveillance, training, auditing
