Anaesthetics

Dr Nicki Somerville

In my capacity as Local Faculty Group Lead for Anaesthesia, I would like to welcome you to Anaesthetic training at East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust. We are one of the largest hospital trusts in England, serving a local population of around 759,000 people. 

We offer excellent training opportunities on all three main sites: Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital in Margate, Kent & Canterbury Hospital and The William Harvey Hospital in Ashford.   

I hope you will enjoy your time in East Kent, in my opinion it provides superb training opportunities in a friendly environment, situated in the beautiful “Garden of England”, an excellent combination!
