Welcome to Victoria Hospital, Deal

We are a 22 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 in a main (acute) hospital by the team looking after you.

On admission to us you will be introduced to your named nurse 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.

We operate a rehab ethos on the ward and we expect our patients to engage with this idea. A key part of your recovery will include getting up and dressed each day 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 together with you, your family and carers 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 more 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 on Elizabeth Ward 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.
