Junior doctors removed from Kent & Canterbury Hospital

A hospital has been told to transfer more than half of its junior doctors to ensure patient safety because of a lack of consultants to train them.

Health Education England said 42 out of 76 trainee doctors at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital should be moved.

The junior doctors are to be transferred to the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford and the QEQM in Margate, also run by the trust.

Matthew Kershaw, chief executive of East Kent Hospitals NHS Trust said changes were needed.
