We are now booking appointments for flu vaccinations. If you are over 65 or in an at risk group please call Reception to book your appointment.
Please allow 5 days from the date of any tests before calling for the results. As our phone lines are particularly busy in the early mornings please only call after 2pm for results.
We would also appreciate it if you could avoid the busiest time for the phone lines (between 8am - 10am if you are calling for a routine appointment or other routine matters.
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 have issues with inconsiderate people parking their cars in our car park, often for long periods of time when they are not visiting the surgery. This obviously makes less spaces available for patients when they need them. You will probably know the car park can be very busy at times. We have looked at options to prevent this inconsiderate parking and if the problem cannot be resolved we may need to have timed parking cameras installed in the car park. We would do this reluctantly, of course, but feel that if our other efforts to deter these violators are not successful we will have no option.
