The privately-run hospital, which will provide some services to NHS patients, will be the first hospital in Kent to carry out various forms of specialist surgery including heart and lung surgery, reducing the need for local residents to travel to London for such treatments.

Despite being a departure from the development plan, DHA secured planning permission by demonstrating the clear medical need for the proposal. DHA co-ordinated an Environmental Impact Assessment to demonstrate the lack of harm of visual impact, ecological, flood risk and archaeological grounds.

Detailed negotiations also took place with Kent County Council and the Highways Agency to agree a package of measures to ensure no harm on highways grounds.
