FOR THE ATTENTION OF PATIENTS OF DR VARMA

Dr Varma will be leaving the surgery on 23rd May. His replacement will be Dr Vikki O’Neill.

We have recently seen a cut to the number of blood test appointment slots offered to us by Maidstone Tunbridge Wells Trust.  In the circumstances demand for the remaining slots is very high.  If you have a blood test appointment please can you ensure that you attend or let reception know if you wish to cancel.

We are now sending appointment reminders by text message.  If you would like to receive these please make sure we have your up to date mobile phone number.

As you can imagine, our telephone lines are busiest between 8am and 10am.  It would be really appreciated if patients ringing for a routine appointment or other routine matter could avoid those times. Thank you.

Ear, Nose and Throat

The community ENT service for the NHS was started by Dr Unwin 17 years ago and now has grown into a team of several doctors and support staff.  The service accepts GP referrals from the West Kent CCG, Dartford and Gravesham CCG, Medway CCG and Swale CCG.  The doctors will see all ear, nose and throat conditions with the exception of children under 2 years and patients with a suspected cancer diagnosis. 

The service also works in close collaboration with the Head and Neck departments of both Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS trust and Medway NHS Foundation trust to reduce their outpatient waiting times. There is an allied aural care (ear microsuction) clinic, for all CCG patients and a service for dispensing new hearing aids for West Kent patients.  The service works closely with HI Kent, which run clinics from several sites including the Borough Green Medical Practice, Rochester Healthy Living Centre and Sittingbourne Memorial Hospital. 

The service has been well received by both local doctors and patients alike, for many years now.

For ENT queries, please contact us on 01732 887210.  The telephone line is open from 10am - 3:30pm Monday to Friday or email us on wkccg.entappointments@nhs.net.
