Our staff are absolutely vital to the running of our Hospice – we simply could not offer the much needed services to our community without their commitment, and the wide range of talents and abilities they bring to their work.


Heart of Kent Hospice is a registered charity whose aim is to provide compassionate, holistic and supportive care for all patients with life limiting illnesses, their families and carers.

In a friendly and supportive environment, we encourage our staff to develop personally and professionally through formal and informal training and development.

Our staff benefits include 27 days’ annual leave plus Bank holidays per annum, a contributory pension scheme (eligible members may continue to contribute to the NHS pension scheme subject to the scheme rules), staff dining facilities where refreshments can be obtained at a reasonable cost., on-site parking at the Hospice at Preston Hall and childcare vouchers.

We actively promote equal opportunities, and value diversity.

Through Disability Confident, we are working to ensure that disabled people and those with long term health conditions have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations.

Heart of Kent Hospice is situated close to the County town of Maidstone, and is within easy access to local motorway networks.
