Stroke services will change in Kent & Medway


We, alongside many of you, have been involved in the review of stroke services for many many months.

There are currently 7 Stroke units across Kent & Medway but none of them offer a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week service.

There have been many events across the county for people to get involved and share their thoughts on stroke services.  A public consultation has now been launched to discuss the creation of three new specialist stroke units. The options for where these specialist hyper acute stroke units may be located are:

1. Darent Valley Hospital, Medway Maritime Hospital, William Harvey Hospital
2. Darent Valley Hospital, Maidstone Hospital, William Harvey Hospital
3. Maidstone Hospital, Medway Maritime Hospital, William Harvey Hospital
4. Tunbridge Wells Hospital, Medway Maritime Hospital, William Harvey Hospital
5. Darent Valley Hospital, Tunbridge Wells Hospital and William Harvey Hospital

The consultation will run for 10 weeks until 13th April and you can share your feedback here 

A series of public meetings is being organised for people to learn more about the proposals and have their say.
