Family and friends, as well as hospital staff, can be accommodated in the hospital single accommodation blocks at Darent Valley Hospital, which are a two-minute walk from the hospital on a well-lit path within the hospital grounds.
The rooms are ready for occupants to move straight into - bed linen, blankets, towels and kitchen appliances are all provided, just bring your personal belongings including toiletries. Electric, parking and Wi-Fi are all included in the price.
The single rooms are for one-person occupancy and share an en-suite with one other person, the kitchen and lounge area is shared with a maximum of 7 other tenants depending on occupancy levels.
Charges for stays of 1 – 4 nights are £40 per night or £200 per week and are to be paid in advance, before arrival. Please contact the Accommodation Manager for current Staff Assured Short Hold Tenancy monthly rates for both single and family accommodation.
Relocation family accommodation is available and is very popular. If you are a staff member and wish to add your name to the waiting list for this type of accommodation, please let the Accommodation Manager know as soon as possible as there may be a 12-month waiting list. Electric, Council Tax and Television License are NOT included in family accommodation charges and need to be paid for separately by the tenant. The family accommodation is NOT available for short stays and is let on a 6 monthly Short Hold Tenancy arrangement to Dartford and Gravesham NHS Staff and is used solely for relocation.
PLEASE NOTE that children under the age of 16 cannot be accommodated in the single accommodation, and the Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust operate a strict NO SMOKING policy throughout.
