Kent & Canterbury Hospital

3rd January 2017
Grading Explained: Requires Improvement

We carried out an announced inspection between 5th and 7th September 2016, and an unannounced insection on 21st September 2016.

This is the third inspection of this hospital. This inspection was specifically designed to test the requirement for the continued application of special measures to the trust. Prior to inspection we risk assessed all services provided by the trust using national and local data and intelligence we received from a number of sources. That assessment has led us to include four services (emergency care, medical services, maternity and gynaecology and end of life care) in this inspection.
