Health Professionals

Welcome to the webpages for Health Professionals

We are committed to developing and maintaining positive working relationships with all our primary care practitioners. We want to make sure that referring patients to us is as easy as possible and that health professionals have all the necessary information at hand to help them do this.

This section will provide you with information on our services, share referral criteria and bring you up to speed on the latest news from our Trust.

GP enquiry service

East Kent Hospitals has set up a dedicated e-mail address for use by GPs and Practice Managers who have a general query for the Trust but do not know who to send it to - ekh-tr.gpinfo@nhs.net.

When you send an e-mail to this address, we will acknowledge the e-mail and forward it to the relevant person so they can respond directly to you.

This service does not replace any of the other communication channels to the Trust and is not intended to replace any clinical referral processes.
