The town of Kettering is surrounded by many attractive villages and there are excellent transport links via the A14 , with mainline rail links to London.
The Trust has 524 inpatient beds, 35 maternity beds and a dedicated day surgery ward. In 2013 the £30 million Foundation Wing opened. This contains a 16 bed Intensive Care Unit, a 28 bed Cardiac Care Ward and a 26 bed Children and Adolescent ward. In addition to providing a broad range of surgical specialities, the hospital has a busy A and E Department and a 24 hour PCI service in its purpose built cardiac centre, whilst the maternity unit supports almost 4000 deliveries per year.
Our trainees find Kettering General a friendly and supportive environment, but they also gain valuable clinical experience dealing with the broad range of cases a District General has to offer.
