About: Medway Maritime Hospital

Anything else?

I would not recommend this hospital in the least. My daughter-in-law has now been waiting in the Emergency ward since thursday for an "Emergency" operation. She was taken down at just after midnight, this morning (Sunday) to be returned back to the ward again, no operation as another emergency had come in. This is surely a breach of human rights, where all patients are supposed to have a duty of care!!!! I do not believe any patient should just be doped up on morphine for this length of time and left to wait - till some unknown surgeon decides they may just fit them in!!!!

We are sorry to hear about the experience of your daughter-in-law whilst in our hospital. The hospital at times does experience an increase in emergency admissions and this occasionally means that some patients’ surgery can be delayed.

Once again we apologise that your experience did not meet your expectations. If you would like to discuss this further please contact me Samantha Goldberg, Deputy General Manager - Surgery, Anaesthesia & Critical Care on 01634 830000.
