Service Changes at Herne Bay Hospital, Deal Hospital and Faversham Health Centre.
Due to the current Covid-19 situation, from 6th April we are temporarily removing the x-ray service from Victoria Hospital in Deal, The Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital in Herne Bay, and Faversham Cottage Hospital in order to support our Radiology departments at QEQM, WHH and KCH. At this time we will still be operating an x-ray service at Royal Victoria Hospital Folkestone between the hours of 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, and at Buckland Hospital Dover between the hours of 9am-5pm Monday to Sunday.
Referrals from GP surgeries are being forwarded by the Surgery to the Radiology Department who are then arranging an appointment with the patient.
Referrals from MIU will be carried out at one of the other sites Kent and Canterbury, Royal Victoria Hospital Folkestone, Buckland Hospital Dover, or William Harvey Hospital or Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital.
Any queries please contact the Radiology Department
