What type of appointments will be available?

On Saturdays, a clinical professional will be available between 09:00 to 12.00.
On Sundays and Bank Holidays a GP will be available between 09:00 to 12:30 (at a hub in Tonbridge or Maidstone).
Who can book these appointments?
Improved Access appointments are available for all patients registered with a west Kent practice. However, it will be unlikely that you will be seen by your normal GP and it is likely that you will have to go to a different surgery to your registered practice for these appointments.
