The practice currently provides these appointments on Mondays and Tuesdays between 07:30 to 08:00 and between 18:30 to 19:30. Please try to see your own doctor if possible.
On Saturdays, a clinical professional will be available between 9.00 am to 12.00 pm.
On Sundays and Bank Holidays a GP will be available between 9.00 am to 12.30 pm (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.
How can I book an appointment?
In order to book these appointments, you contact your surgery reception staff as normal. You will not be able to phone the reception staff on Saturdays, Sundays / Bank Holidays or between 6.30 pm to 8.00 pm Monday to Friday.
You can only attend these appointments if you have pre-booked. If you do not have an appointment and require medical attention when the surgery is closed please call 111.
