About us

We are a large community health trust covering an extensive geographical area. We believe our patients should always be our top priority.

We provide wide-ranging NHS care for people in the community, in a range of settings including people’s own homes; nursing homes; health clinics; community hospitals; minor injury units and in mobile units.

We are one of the largest NHS community health providers in England, serving a population of about 1.4 million across Kent and 600,000 in East Sussex and London. We employ more than 5,000 staff, including doctors, community nurses, physiotherapists, dietitians and many other healthcare professionals. We became a foundation trust on 1 March 2015.
