Education & Research

Gen Image

Every member of staff at the Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells Trust should be able to realise their full potential during their career with the Trust.  From your first day you will be invited to take part in our comprehensive induction programme and offered the support of a mentor to guide you through your professional development. All staff have annual appraisals and a personal development plan.

We offer a range of educational opportunities to MTW staff through both our in-house training programmes and through partnerships with external providers.  The Trust enjoys close working relationships with the University of Brighton and with Christchurch University, Canterbury.  Both of these institutions welcome MTW staff and we actively support opportunities for our staff to pursue flexible modes of study. 

The Trust’s research and development team supports existing and encourages new research ensuring that all projects and clinical trials, whether NHS driven or externally sponsored are conducted to the highest standards.  Findings from research are shared within the Trust and we participate in many multi-site research projects conducted nationally, chiefly in the field of cancer treatments.
