Livingstone Community Hospital, Dartford

Who we are
The team consists of 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 28 beds available and the hospital takes patients directly from their own homes, when they are unable to cope at home, but do 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.

  • The level of care at Livingstone Hospital is 5-star.  We didn't know such a brilliant rehab service was available for our elderly Mum. Everything there is just superb.
