Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust
We provide wide-ranging NHS care for people in the community, in a range of settings including people’s own homes; nursing homes; health clinics; community hospitals; minor injury units and in mobile units.
We are one of the largest NHS community health providers in England, serving a population of about 1.4 million across Kent and 600,000 in East Sussex and London. We employ more than 5,000 staff, including doctors, community nurses, physiotherapists, dietitians and many other healthcare professionals....
The trust provides services for children and adults to support them to stay healthy and manage their long-term health conditions, help them avoid going into hospital and, when they have needed to be in hospital, help them to get home quickly.
Advice and support for children’s emotional and physical health and wellbeing is available from a range of services, including health visitors, by attending one of the trust’s parenting support groups in children’s centres or from our school-based nurses. Our health improvement services support people to make positive lifestyle choices.
Help is available to increase exercise, eat healthily, quit smoking and assist with wider health and social care needs. Sexual health services encourage safe sex and provide contraception, family planning and treatment.
