When We Are Closed
An emergency out-of-hours service can be accessed by calling 03000 242424. This telephone number will also be available if you call the surgery during these times.
Buckland Hospital and the Kent & Canterbury Hospital have minor injury services available, and the nearest A&E Departments are at the William Harvey Hospital, Ashford, and the QEQM Hospital in Margate.
Alternatively you can access urgent assistance by calling NHS Direct on 0845 4647. A triage nurse will assess your situation and take appropriate action. This could simply be by offering advice or where necessary by making arrangements for you to be seen by a doctor.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
