Through the eyes of a patient with learning difficulties


We recently visited three hospitals in East Kent to explore how a patient with learning difficulties would find her appointment.

In partnership with East Kent Mencap, our report published today details the experience of a patient and the challenges she faced to find her appointment.

Together we visited main reception and Outpatients at William Harvey Hospital in Ashford, Kent & Canterbury Hospital and QEQM in Margate.

Her experience plus our recommendations can be read in our report below.

If you have an experience of visiting a Kent hospital do get in touch. Call us for free on 0808 801 0102 or email info@healthwatchkent.co.uk
