Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust has its headquarters at Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford, Kent.
Darent Valley Hospital is a relatively new, purpose built hospital which opened in August 2000 and was the first Private Finance Initiative hospital to be completed. In October 2013 the Trust took on a number of services at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup and Erith & District Hospital as part of the dissolution of the South London Healthcare Trust. The Trust offers a comprehensive range of acute services, with a bed-base of 544, to around 400,000 people in North Kent and South East London.
