Emergency Department estimated waiting times

We provide care to the most critical cases first - so if your condition is not serious you could be waiting much longer. If you would like to find alternative services, please visit Health Help Now, or contact your GP / NHS 111 if you are unsure.

For full details on your urgent care options in east Kent, please take a look at our guide to urgent care.
