New signs for hospital

Kettering General Hospital is replacing all of its internal directional signs to make it easier for patients and visitors to find their way around.

Hundreds of existing signs – put up over many years and in many different styles – are being replaced with a modern system of colour coding and large maps.

The work will begin in early October and should be completed within a week.

Kettering General Hospital’s Director of Estates and Facilities, Derek Shaw, said: “We have been aware for some time that the hospital’s signage is inconsistent and can be confusing – especially to new patients or visitors.

“The Trust hasn’t had a substantial review of its signage for at least 20 years and we decided that now was a good time to modernise and simplify what we have to ‘get the basics right’ for our patients and visitors.

“We will be retaining our prominent external signs – to places like A&E, outpatients and Rockingham Wing – but within the hospital itself our internal signs will all be changing.
