Temporary changes at Kent and Canterbury hospital
We are planning to make temporary changes to some services at Kent and Canterbury Hospital (K&C) from 19 June 2017. 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 will affect 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.
