Edenbridge Minor Injury Unit will be closed until the end of October
Edenbridge Minor Injury Unit will be closed until the end of October while urgent boiler repairs are carried out.
The MIU will be closed from Monday, 4 October to Monday, 25 October.
During this time, the nearest Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust alternative is Sevenoaks Urgent Treatment Centre.
There is also a MIU also at East Grinstead (Queen Victoria Hospital) and full A&E at Tunbridge Wells Hospital.
Repairs to the boiler and heating system need to be carried out now to avoid the possible complete closure of the hospital in the middle of winter. KCHFT was informed of the boiler and pipework issues by site landlord NHS Property Services.
The inpatient ward at Edenbridge will remain open.
