Who we are

What we do
We run the 26-bed Elizabeth Ward which provides intermediate care, palliative care and continuing care. The ward has protected meal times for patients, so visitors are encouraged to avoid visiting during these.
There is also a minor injury unit, an x-ray department and appointment-only blood tests in the phlebotomy department.
Outpatient services, run by East Kent Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (EKHFTs) moved to Buckland hospital in 2015. However, there are some services running from Deal hospital including EKHFT’s Rheumatology Consultant Service, twice weekly, an ENT clinic run by a local GP and other voluntary services.
There are also outpatient consultations with visiting consultants in all major specialities, such as child heath, dental services, therapy and rehabilitation services plus other out-of-hours services. IC24 runs a GP out-of-hours services in the mornings, at weekends and bank holidays.
How do you use this service?
You need to be referred by a GP or healthcare professional for inpatient and outpatients services. You can self-refer to the minor injury unit.
