Following careful consideration of the severe weather warnings in place for the South East of England, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust has taken the decision to postpone all routine and non-urgent outpatient and elective appointments that are due to take place at Maidstone Hospital and Tunbridge Wells Hospital on Tuesday, 27th February, Wednesday, 28th February, and Thursday, 1st March.

We are contacting patients directly to let them know that their appointments have been cancelled and rescheduled. Please note if you have not been contacted by us then your appointment will still be going ahead today (28th) and tomorrow (1 March).

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and have taken this decision with the safety of our patients in mind.
