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, visiting medical officer and medical consultants.

What we do

We provide a rehabilitation-focussed inpatient approach to care. There are 25 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.

Faversham Cottage Hospital also offers several outpatient clinic services.

How do you use this service?

You need to be referred by a GP or healthcare professional to use this service.

Parking and facilities at the hospital

There is a central pay and display car park on Bank Street, close to the hospital (max four hour stay). Or a longer stay car park within five minute walk.

There is a vending machine with a selection of cold drinks, sandwiches and snacks, in the hospital. There is also a Tesco and Morrisons that are a five minute walk plus several cafes in town.
