The pressure on all NHS services across Kent and Medway has risen significantly due to the higher infection rates in the community we’ve seen in recent weeks. All our hospitals are extremely busy and we expect that to continue over the coming weeks.
The NHS across Kent and Medway is working together to provide support where needed and have cooperated to ensure we have opened more critical care beds. We’re continuing to provide cancer and other urgent operations.
If you have an appointment, please still attend. If we need to reschedule an appointment you will be contacted directly.
Please see our Coronavirus advice page for information and advice on coming into hospital.
