Temporary changes at Kent and Canterbury hospital
We have made some temporary changes to some services at Kent and Canterbury Hospital (K&C). If you have a planned operation or appointment at K&C, these changes will not affect you and you will be seen and treated as usual.
This change affects people who require emergency medical care for conditions like heart attack, stroke and pneumonia.
These patients will be taken directly by ambulance to our hospitals in Margate or Ashford, whichever is closer, for initial assessment and if they need to be admitted, patients will continue to be treated at these hospitals while they are very unwell.

Major breakthrough in NHS transparency
NHS England is committed to making more information available about how services and professionals are performing. The aim is to drive up the quality of care and to help people choose the treatment that suits them best.
The data – covering around 3,500 consultants – can be found on the NHS Choices website and covers a range of operations and procedures.
