Overview

Who we are

Our in-patient area of the hospital is overseen by a modern matron, registered nurses, rehabilitation assistants, health care assistants, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, a care manager, a pharmacist and a visiting medical officer.

What we do

We provide a rehabilitation-focussed inpatient approach to care. There are in-patient beds available and the hospital takes patients from acute hospitals, as well from the community; for example when a person is unable to cope at home, but does not need to be in an acute hospital.

We offer a service for patients, within the acute sector, who are medically stable but need further rehabilitation.

Our aim is to help patients regain their independence where appropriate, and to teach them coping strategies, for example after a stroke. Staff work in partnership with the patient, carer and relatives to ensure all aspects of care, including assessment of needs on admission, joint goal setting, planning, implementation and evaluation of care, are effective.

Other services at Sittingbourne Memorial Hospital include a minor injury unit, X-ray department and outpatient clinics. It is home to many community teams and services.
