A comprehensive service is available from your own doctor or the practice nurse. Please make an appointment in the usual way.
Dr Eyo and Dr Staker are able to carry out simple surgical procedures in the surgery; Dr Staker specialises in joint injections. Please make an appointment with your doctor in the usual way for an initial assessment.
Non NHS Services
Private medical examinations, completion of insurance claim forms and private certificates do not fall within the scope of the NHS. There is, therefore, a charge for these services. This includes certain types of travel vaccinations. A list of charges is available from reception.
Sittingbourne Memorial Hospital Blood Tests
The Memorial Hospital offers a walk-in service for all blood tests. No appointment is necessary and it is open between 8.00am and 1.30pm Monday to Friday. If the blood test requires you to fast (sugar and cholesterol tests) you should not eat from midnight.
