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 who will commence at the surgery on 4th June. Your care will be covered by the duty doctors during the brief period between Dr Varma leaving and Dr O’Neill’s arrival.

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.
