Due to the high volume of patients wishing to register at this surgery, we are temporarily capping our list in order that we can continue to provide a safe and timely service to existing patients.

If you are a new patient to the area wishing to register at a practice, please contact the allocation line on 01424 735652.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

When you attend for your next appointment why not use our new checking in service? As you walk into the waiting room you will see the new automatic check-in ahead of you, to the left. Just touch the screen and follow the instructions. To use it, all you need to know is your date of birth! It really is that simple!

PLEASE NOTE: GP appointments are 10 minutes in duration.

From the 1st September 2017 you will no longer be able to order repeat prescriptions via the surgery email address.

Training Practice

This practice has been accredited as being suitable for the training of those doctors intending to become General Practitioners.This means that the Practice and the Doctors have had to achieve a number of standards which have been assessed by the GP Deanery for Kent, Surrey and Sussex, acting on behalf of the national organisation (the Joint Committee for Postgraduate Training in General Practice)

These are some points for your information:-

1. Those doctors training to become GPs are called GP registrars.

2. The GP registrar is a fully qualified doctor who is likely to have a lot of experience of hospital medicine.

3. If you are seeing this doctor you can expect to receive the quality of service you would expect from your own GP. If you have any concerns please mention this to a member of staff.

4. In order for the GP registrars to successfully complete their training they need to be assessed on their consulting skills. This is done, in part, by the appointed assessors viewing a video of the registrar's consultations.You may be asked for your permission to have your consultation recorded in this way.If you agree, you will be asked to sign a consent form. If the doctor appears to be recording your consultation and you have not signed a form, please tell him or her immediately. The recording will be for educational purposes only. If you have any questions please ask our reception staff.

Please ask at reception for any further information you may need.
