Come and join the only CQC rated Outstanding private hospital in Kent

Claire Harley, Director of Patient Services

Have you ever thought about working at Benenden Hospital? What makes our hospital so special you may ask? Is it the CQC Outstanding rated care that our patients receive from our staff, from the first contact they have to the day they complete their treatment or perhaps it’s the proud history the hospital has of caring for people since 1907.

Since then our hospital has transformed into a modern, contemporary facility which delivers quality healthcare using the latest procedures and technologies with our teams and patients are at the heart of everything we do.

We offer consultation, diagnostic tests and treatment for self-pay, and Private Medical Insurance patients, Benenden Health members and patients referred through the NHS e-Referral service.

Our latest awards and accreditations

We have had a lot to celebrate too: our re-accreditation from JAG for our endoscopy unit, the investors in People “We invest in Wellbeing” silver rating and our growth and expansion of new treatments and services. All of this achieved through the input, team working and commitment of our staff.

Recruitment event

After the success of our first two recruitment events , we are delighted to be hosting our third face-to-face recruitment open morning on Saturday 24 September from 10am to midday at Benenden Hospital, Goddard’s Green Road, Benenden TN17 4AX.

The event will provide a first-hand insight into working at the hospital. Attendees will learn about our full-time and part-time vacancies in nursing, theatres, the allied health professions - including physiotherapy - diagnostic imaging, non-clinical roles including housekeeping, as well as Flexi-Bank vacancies and the option of volunteering. They'll also discover more about our benefits and rewards and the recruitment process.

Speakers on the day will include Claire Harley – Director of Patient Services, Ali Turner – Matron and Claire Coupe – Resourcing Officer. We will also have staff from across a variety of departments on hand to answer any questions and to talk through their roles.

There will be an opportunity to take a tour of clinical areas of the hospital such as Outpatients, Wards and Eye Unit, providing potential employees with a feel of where they could be working and the calming environment our staff and facilities create for our patients.
