When We Are Closed
Please call NHS 111.
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.
Rural Community Weekend Urgent Care Service
The Weekend Urgent Care Centre, which was started as a pilot service operating at weekends 9am-12pm, has proved to be a valued additional service to our patients and has offered the reassurance of seeing a local GP should an urgent healthcare need arise over the weekend.
The service will be provided at Ivy Court Surgery on SATURDAY MORNINGS ONLY and will be provided at Hamstreet Surgery on SUNDAY MORNINGS ONLY.
The service will operate exactly as it does now with a walk-in service for patients registered to Ivy Court, Hamstreet, Woodchurch or Charing surgeries only who would otherwise have called 111 or attended A&E, but will be located at Ivy Court Surgery on Saturday between 9am and 12pm and in Hamstreet on a Sunday morning 9am and 12pm.
We would like to remind our patients that we will be unable to deal with routine queries.
