Welcome to Sevenoaks Community Hospital

We are a 19 bed in-patient unit providing a rehabilitation and intermediate care service. You will need to be referred by your GP from home or while you are a patient at a main (acute) hospital by the team looking after you.

On admission to us you will be introduced to your nurse on duty and team who will work closely as part of the ward multidisciplinary team (MDT) to agree an individual care plan with you; our aim being to enable you to recover as much independence as possible prior to returning home.

Getting up and dressed each day will play a key part in your recovery, so please make sure you have day clothes and suitable shoes with you along with any items you may need for your personal care. During your stay we hope you will also be able to enjoy some of our activities which will help your recovery, progress and well-being.

The MDT will work with you, your family and carers from admission to make sure all support is in place prior to your discharge from us.

We would encourage and welcome your family, friends and carers to visit you while you are with us.

On admission, you and your family will be provided with detailed information about your care and all staff will be available to discuss any queries you may have during your stay with us.

The team takes pride in delivering high quality care for our patients. We are always happy to receive compliments or you can tell us about anything we could have done better.  You can give your feedback anytime online here.
