At East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust we want to take as much care of our visitors as we do of our patients.

If you are visiting a friend or relative at one of our hospitals for the first time:

  • make sure you know the formal name of the person you are visiting
  • find out which ward they are on from their nearest relative, or ask the hospital's main reception
  • find out what times the ward is open to visitors see our list of wards and their visiting hours

East Kent Hospitals is a smoke-free Trust. This means that for the good of the health of our patients, visitors and staff, smoking is not allowed in the hospital grounds or buildings.
