Health and Care

Ashford has clear plans to keep pace with its growth and care for its increasing population.

Healthcare services are expanding across Ashford. Public and private sector investment is being ploughed into the region to provide health centres and facilities, helping to support Ashford's ambitious development programme.

  • Ashford has two primary health centres and has plans for two more. These centres provide far-reaching facilities ranging from traditional medical support to specialised services such as minor surgery and counselling.
  • Ashford has 74 registered GP's, 15 dental practises and the William Harvey which has benefited from a multi-million pound investment to improve its services.
  • A new Primary Health Care Centre in South Ashford, St Stephens Walk PCT provides traditional general health care alongside a variety of clinics and services supported by the special interests of GPs.
  • Care in the community caters for a diverse range of individual needs, from providing the best start in life to a child or a sense of independence to a vulnerable adult.
