East Kent Hospitals Foundation Trust is one of the largest hospital trusts in England, with five hospitals and several outpatient facilities across East Kent and Medway. It is also home to specialist centres, such as the Stour Centre, one of just 21 specialist haemophilia treatment centres in the UK.
In March 2009 East Kent Hospitals NHST Trust was awarded Foundation Trust status. The IT estate is also one of the largest in the UK. Over 4,500 PCs, 1,000 laptops, 1,300 printers and 200 servers are used throughout the Trust. In the past two years alone, the Trust has invested over £2 million in this portfolio and now leads the UK in the development of mobile computing within the healthcare arena.
