Sevenoaks MP Michael Fallon visited Sevenoaks Hospital and its Minor Injuries Unit on Friday 22nd June. He met duty nursing staff and senior management. With representatives of NHS Property estates he inspected the new £500,000 upgrade of the hospital parking and drainage on both sides of the road.
Sir Michael said: “Sevenoaks Hospital is here to stay. Investment on this scale shows confidence in its long-term future, especially when the Minor Injuries Unit has never been busier. The unit is now being used by over 17,000 people a year. Almost every family in the district must have had some-one use it recently.”
The West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group is holding a public meeting at the Stag Theatre at 1.30pm on Tuesday 3rd July on its ideas to adapt the hospital into a “local care hub. Sir Michael added: “whatever they propose, we will not accept any cut in the services currently provided.”
