Sheppey Community Hospital

Who we are
The inpatient area is overseen by a modern matron with a team of registered nurses, rehabilitation assistants, healthcare assistants, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, a care manager, a pharmacist and visiting medical officer.
What we do
We provide a rehabilitation-focused inpatient approach to care. There are 40 beds available and the hospital takes patients directly from their own homes, and from the acute trusts. We are able to provide end of life and stroke care.

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.

Other services at Sheppey Community Hospital include a minor injury unit, X-ray department and outpatient clinics and many other community-based teams.

  • I was seen very promptly and treated very well. (Outpatient department)

  • Harty ward has the most caring staff that could be wished for. Nothing was too much trouble, day or night. I was never more relieved when I was told that I was being transferred from another hospital to Sheppey.
