We are one of the largest hospital trusts in England, with five hospitals and community clinics serving a local population of around 759,000 people.
We also provide some specialist services for a wider population, including renal services in Medway and Maidstone and a cardiac service for all of Kent based at William Harvey Hospital, Ashford.
Our vision is 'great healthcare from great people'. Everything we do is guided by our vision and values.
We have a national and international reputation for delivering high quality specialist care, particularly in cancer, kidney disease, stroke and vascular services.
We value and pursue excellence in research and innovation. Our Trust has been ranked first in Kent for clinical research studies, as well as consistently recruiting high numbers of patients into research trials.
As a teaching Trust we play a vital role in the education and training of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, working closely with local universities and Kings College University in London.
It was also recently announced that a new medical school, the first in the county, will be opening in two years. The school, which will offer 100 medical school places per year, is a game-changing opportunity and one which the two universities and Kent and Medway trusts have been working towards and hoping for over several years.
