What we do

We provide a rehabilitation-focussed inpatient approach to care. There are 18 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 with the patient, carer and relatives to make sure all aspects of care, including assessment of needs on admission, joint goal setting, planning, implementation and evaluation of care, are effective.

Whitstable and Tankerton Hospital also offers several outpatient clinic services.

How do you use this service?

We take patients who come under pathways 2/3 of the Discharge to Assess scheme, non-weight-bearing patients and step-up patients.
