Noticeboard

We regret to say that we have no further supplies of pneumonia vaccine and due to a national shortage we are unlikely to get any more until January.  Please keep an eye on the website for updates.

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.

We are now taking bookings for flu vaccinations.  If you are eligible we will already have ordered your flu vaccination so we ask you to support the practice and have the flu jab at the surgery rather than at a pharmacy.

Training & Research

GP Training

This practice has been accredited to train doctors intending to become general practitioners. The practice needs to be regularly inspected for this purpose, and this involves inspection of the medical records. Only doctors approved for this purpose will do this, and they will respect completely the confidentiality of the information. If you do not want your records to be available for inspection then please inform the practice of your wishes.

Sometimes the doctor may wish to video record their consultations, and in this case your permission will always be requested beforehand. Further information about training in this practice is available from the receptionist.

Research

The practice is part of the National Framework of the Medical Research Council, which carries out nationally the sort of research which can only be done, or is best done, in general practice. Patients are occasionally invited to take part in such carefully monitored projects.
