William Harvey Hospital image

The William Harvey Hospital, Ashford is an acute hospital providing a range of emergency and elective services as well as comprehensive maternity, trauma, orthopaedic and paediatric and neonatal Intensive care services. The hospital is located on the outskirts of Ashford, adjacent to the M20 and was commissioned in 1977.

The hospital has a specialist cardiology unit undertaking angiography, angioplasty, a state of the art pathology analytical robotics laboratory that reports all East Kent’s General Practitioner (GP) activity and a robotic pharmacy facility. A single Head and Neck Unit for east Kent has recently been established and includes centralised maxillofacial services with all specialist head and neck cancer surgery co-located on the site.
