Podcast – High Court rules in favour of closing stroke units at three Kent hospitals – 21/02/20

Campaigners say they’re considering appealing the High Court’s decision to uphold plans to close stroke units at three hospitals in Kent.

It means the emergency stroke treatment at the QEQM in Margate will end next spring – with services at Medway Maritime and Tunbridge Wells also set to shut.

Specialist centres are instead going to be opened in Ashford, Dartford and Maidstone.
