Our medical centre staff provide an unmatched quality service to each of our valued patients. With high levels of professional experience and the specialised training to match, our patients from Penshurst and beyond will always be comfortable in the care of our friendly staff.
Telephoning the practice during surgery hours will enable you to make an appointment with the doctor of your choice. Please note that appointment times are only approximate, as delays may occur when emergencies arise or practitioners need to give extra time to very sick patients. At the time of making an appointment, please let the Receptionist know if you need a longer appointment. This helps reduce waiting time for others. If you wish to speak to the doctor by phone please let the receptionist know if your call is urgent. If not your doctor may choose to call you back at a later time.
Emergencies will be seen at any time without an appointment. It would be helpful if you could phone our medical centre in Penshurst before you arrive to let us know you are coming. This enables our staff to arrange some time for the doctor to see you. If your emergency is of a life threatening nature, please call 000 immediately.
