Healthwatch Kent’s Steve Inett said, “It’s disappointing to hear in the news today about the levels of MRSA and infection control at Darent Valley Hospital.


We will be working closely with both the hospital and the Clinical Commissioning Group who commissions hospital services to ensure this is being addressed and patients are supported during this difficult time.


In the meantime, we would like to encourage all patients to contact Healthwatch Kent and share their experiences of hospital services so we can help our Kent hospitals to improve.”.
