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. Since then the site has been developed, substantially upgraded and, more recently, reorganised into medical and surgical floors.

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. 

WHH has a post graduate teaching centre and staff accommodation. There are also adult and elderly mental health services on site provided by Kent and Medway NHS & Social Care Partnership Trust.
