Children's care

All inpatient (overnight) children's care is now provided in the new children's centre at Tunbridge Wells Hospital.

Children continue to have their outpatient appointments and day surgery at Maidstone Hospital, but not their overnight care. All overnight care is provided at the new Tunbridge Wells Hospital.

Maidstone Hospital has a new short stay paediatric assessment unit where children are seen and treated on weekdays between 9am and 9pm. If children require overnight care they are transferred to Tunbridge Wells Hospital.

At all other times children with minor injuries and illnesses are seen and treated at Maidstone Hospital, but they are stabilised and transferred to Tunbridge Wells Hospital if they need inpatient care.
