Overview

Kent and Canterbury Hospital image

The Kent and Canterbury Hospital, Canterbury is an acute hospital with 287 beds (as of March 2012) providing a range of elective and emergency services including an innovative Emergency Care Centre (ECC). The hospital is located on the outskirts of the City of Canterbury. The original part of the main hospital building was constructed in 1937, with later developments undertaken on site in the1960s.

The site has seen significant investment in recent years including the provision of a new day surgery unit, a new endoscopy suite, a state of the art Child Ambulatory Day Centre and most renal dialysis facilities and modern vascular and interventional radiology facilities.  This hospital provides a central base for many specialist services in East Kent such as renal, vascular, interventional radiology, urology, dermatology, neurology, haemophilia and radiotherapy services (the latter provided by Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust).    

Kent and Canterbury Hospital has a postgraduate teaching centre and staff accommodation.
