Mental Health Investment in Maidstone
Investment in mental health has been high on the Government's agenda, with the Prime Minister pledging almost £1billion of investment in the sector.
As part of this drive, DHA has secured planning consent for a 60,000 sq ft private hospital run by Cygnet Health Care at the Kent Medical Campus in Maidstone.
This will support the national aim to provide local care to those suffering from mental illness and reduce the distance that patients have to travel for care.
The new 64 bed hospital will provide mental health care to adult men and women in a safe and secure enviornment and it is anticipated that 95% of their referrals will be NHS patients.
