The Care Quality Commission have published the results of their inspections to Accident & Emergency departments at William Harvey Hospital in Ashford and QEQM Hospital in Margate. Both departments have been rated as 'Requires Improvement'.
A&E in East Kent

Healthwatch Kent's Robbie Goatham is encouraging people to come forward and tell their story about using A&E services in East Kent.

Your feedback is really powerful. You might not think you have a story to tell, but every piece of feedback, no matter how small, could be used to help improve A&E for someone else in the future. Get in touch and tell us what happened when you went to A&E recently. We want to hear about the good stories too, as well as what could be improved.
