The Buckland Hospital, Dover is a community hospital that provides a range of local services. The hospital was built at the turn of the 20th century in Coombe Valley, Dover.  

East Kent Hospitals has invested £23m to rebuild the hospital in Dover to provide modern facilities for the south Kent coast population. Building work is due to be completed in 2015.

The new facilities will include a minor injuries unit walk in centre, outpatient facilities, renal satellite services, day hospital services, child health ambulatory and child development services, and diagnostic facilities.  This is an important development for the Trust as it secures local access to services.
