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.
