Please note that all patients in the practice are allocated to a Named GP. This is following guidelines from the Department of Health. Although it is preferable to try and maintain some continuity with seeing the same GP for an existing medical condition, this does not stop you from seeing any GP within the practice.
If you currently have a repeat medication on prescription, your named GP will be printed on your repeat medication order form. If you are still unsure as to whom your Named GP is, please ask at the reception desk, or speak to a GP/nurse at your next appointment
|Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as female contraception (e.g Implants and coils), anti-coagulation services (e.g. Warfarin testing), travel advice, cervical smears, childhood vaccinations and dressings. The practice nurses also run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma, COPD and diabetes.|

Our Urgent Care Practitioners are registered paramedics or nurses who have completed additional training, and so are able to assess, diagnose, treat and manage illness and disease. Our Urgent Care Practitioners help to run the Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) at Faversham Cottage Hospital. The MIU is available to all patients both in and out of Faversham.
It is open from 8 AM till 8 PM 7 days a week, including Bank Holidays (apart from Christmas Day).
You can get help for any Minor Injuries, cuts, wounds, grazes, eye and ear injuries, bites, abscesses, falls, burns, sprains, strains and foreign bodies.
You can also get treatment for Minor Illnesses for problems like infections, rashes, coughs and colds when your GP surgery is closed.
X-ray is available 10am to 4pm Monday-Friday. Patients need to bring with them the forms provided by their GP and do not need to book an appointment.

|Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement, electrocardiograms (ECGs), ear syringing, NHS health checks, and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.|
