Living in east Kent

With miles of incredible coastline, rolling countryside, lively seaside towns, diverse communities and easy access to London and Europe, east Kent offers the best of both worlds as a place to develop your career.

East Kent is a great place to live, a beautiful, varied landscape with stunning countryside and coastlines and high performing schools.

We have hospitals in the Cathedral city of Canterbury, a World Heritage Site with history everywhere you turn, in the seaside town of Margate, home to the Turner Contemporary gallery and a blossoming art scene, and in Ashford, one of the fastest-growing towns in the country, where you are less than an hour from London but with great shopping and leisure options on your doorstep. We also offer outpatient services in our modern hospital in Dover, close to the Channel ferry port, and in Folkestone, where the Channel Tunnel offers a convenient link to the continent.
