Overview

Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital image

The Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital, Margate is an acute hospital with 388 beds (as of March 2012), providing a range of emergency and elective services and comprehensive trauma, orthopaedic, obstetrics, general surgery and paediatric services.  The hospital dates back to the 1930s when the original building was constructed. Between 1996 and 1998 most services were relocated and expanded into a new main hospital building linked to the original facilities.

The hospital has a specialist centre for gynaecological cancer and modern operating theatres, Intensive Therapy Unit (ITU) facilities, children’s inpatient and outpatient facilities, a new Cardiac Catheter Laboratory and Cancer Unit.  New staff accommodation provides a mix of single, couple and family accommodation.  

In March 2008 the Trust purchased the company that owned and ran the 22 bed private hospital (the Spencer Wing), which sits in the grounds of QEQM Margate Hospital.  The Spencer Wing carries out work for the Trust and has helped the organisation to reduce and maintain its waiting times. 

QEQM has a post graduate teaching centre and staff accommodation. On site there are also co-located adult and elderly mental health facilities run by the Kent & Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust.
