Welcome to Tonbridge Community Hospital
The hospital operates one large ward with 25 beds and an ambulatory care room for ambulatory patients to receive intravenous antibiotics on a daily basis.
On admission to Goldsmid Ward, you will be introduced to members of the multidisciplinary team (MDT) which includes nurses, health care assistants, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and a care manager. You will be involved in the development of personalised care plans and rehabilitation goals which are available for you and you family to view. Our aim is to enable you to recover as much independence as possible prior to returning home.
Getting up and dressed each day will be a key part in aiding 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 aid your recovery, progress and well-being.
The MDT will work with you, involving your family and carers, from admission to make sure all support is in place prior to your timely 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 more detailed information about your care and rehabilitation goals and ward staff will be available to discuss any queries you may have during your stay with us.
