The Canterbury Charity Hospital Trust provides FREE elective day surgery, medical outpatients clinics, dentistry and counselling for those in the Canterbury community who can’t access care from the public or private health systems.
The Canterbury Charity Hospital provides free counselling services from its Harewood Road premises. To find out more or to make an appointment telephone us on 03 360 2266.
We pride ourselves on our state of the art equipment to ensure the safety of our patients and our amazing volunteer staff.
Over the years many doctors, nurses, dentists, health professionals and public-spirited people have volunteered their time and expertise to help make the charity hospital a success and enable us to provide our services for free.
Our dedicated team of volunteer and clinical nurses (Alice, Anita and Joanne) ensure our patients have a speedy recovery following their day surgery. We now have a brand new recovery ward with both beds and comfy recliner chairs.
We are always delighted to hear from Medical Specialists, Anaesthetists, Nurses, Technicians and Administration staff who would like to join our volunteer team.
We are supported by you the public. Please help us to support your community.

If you’d asked Canterbury Charity Hospital co-founder Phil Bagshaw about the future of the new Canterbury Charity Hospital on opening day 10 years ago, he would never have predicted it would grow to encompass three high-tech building developments, two state-of-the-art theatres, oral surgery suites and multiple consulting rooms, staffed by over 300 dedicated volunteer medical and support staff.
