Our patients are at the centre of what we do. There is nothing more heart-warming for our team than when a former patient gets in touch and wants to visit us. If you, or a family member, has been a patient of ours and would like to get in touch, we would love to hear from you. Some patients share their story to help raise awareness of our work.

I’m a Paramedic with KSS, as well as being a former patient. I was thrown from my horse in 2010 whilst riding in Camber near Rye. It was the early afternoon and I was cantering on my then five-year-old gelding Bonnet, when he caught his front leg in a rabbit hole in a field near home. I was thrown over his head and onto the ground.

My name is Jen and I wanted to share the story of how KSS helped my daughter after she was kicked by a passing horse almost exactly a year ago.

It was the beginning of June 2019 and we were at a friend's house. I’m told I went inside to use the toilet. I must have missed a step as I came down and I fell from the top, ending up in a heap at the bottom. My head took most of the impact so I was knocked unconscious and had blood coming out of my ear.

I will be forever grateful to KSS for saving my daughter’s life. At the time of her accident though I certainly didn’t think that 28 years later I would be extending that gratitude and thanking them for saving my life too.

I was taking my youngest son, Harry (aged 10) to school in July 2018. It was like any other day. I was driving along the A2070 to Hamstreet in Kent, a road which is renowned for accidents, when a car veered into me. I didn’t have time to react.

Jack was walking with his girlfriend when he slipped and hit his head on the pavement. I got a call to say that Jack was injured and needed to go to the hospital. I wasn’t too worried.

I was visiting a close friend of mine in August 2020. I was heading back and had a head on collision with another car. It was combined speed of over 100mph. I would have lost a leg and could have died if it weren't for the team from KSS.

It was a lovely, sunny day; great conditions for paragliding, with light thermals building. I’ve been doing paragliding for 24 years. It’s the simplest form of aviation that exists; you fly using a fabric wing, which keeps its form by the air pressure going into it. I think everyone wants to fly, there’s still a bit of the ancestral bird in us.

I remember the day vividly. I had just returned from a business trip the night before and was working at home that day. Thank God, otherwise the outcome could have been very different.
