Whitstable clinicSee KIMS Hospital Orthopaedic Consultants at Estuary View Medical Centre, Whitstable
To make it much easier for patients to access orthopaedic consultants at KIMS Hospital, we now run clinics at Estuary View Medical Centre, Whitstable. You can enjoy the best of both worlds: have your orthopaedic surgery at Kent’s largest independent hospital and your appointments with your consultant just a short distance from your home. Apart from your surgery, you can visit our Whitstable orthopaedic clinic for:
- The initial appointment with your orthopaedic consultant
- Your pre-admission assessment
- Your Post-op follow up appointment
- All your post-op physiotherapy appointments
Your consultant might occasionally need you to have a more specialist scan or test that isn’t available at Estuary View, so you may need to come to KIMS Hospital for those.
My stay at KIMS Hospital was great, they really couldn’t do enough for me. The nursing team were incredibly caring and helpful at a very daunting time; everyone put me at ease. Colin Turner – Knee replacement

We have five fully integrated theatres. Our Theatre Manager was involved in the design and set up of the theatre space at KIMS Hospital which has allowed us to create a highly efficient system. Our patients benefit from this as it minimises the time spent under anaesthetic and in surgery. Our three orthopaedic theatres, all have state-of-the-art laminar flow systems which help to maintain clean air flow and ventilation in the operating theatre during a procedure. This is particularly important for orthopaedic patients as it helps to reduce the risk of infection.
At KIMS Hospital, we are proud to say that our infection rates remain at 0%.*
