We currently hold  walk in clinics during the hours of  8.30am – 10.00am each morning.  At Aylesham Medical Practice these clinics are run by Nurse Practitioners where a  GP is available if the Nurse Practitioner feels it is necessary.  Having carried out  a survey during August 2018 it was found that patients preferred an appointment system where appointments are released on a daily basis.  Having taken this into account we will revert back to an appointment system from Monday 17th September 2018.

Our doors are open from 8.00am if you wish to attend to book an appointment on the day or, alternatively, please telephone and make an appointment.

Our afternoon appointments are pre- bookable between the hours of 1.00pm –  5.30pm

If  we are closed and  you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency call  111   NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.

You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it’s not a life-threatening situation.

Aylesham Medical Practice will be  closed from 1.00pm every third Thursday afternoon for training, except during the month of August.

Telephone lines are open from 8.00am – 6.30pm

 

Appointment System

Under the new GP contract patients are no longer registered with a particular doctor but with a surgery.  A patient may not always see their preferred Doctor at the surgery during morning clinics but are able to book the doctor of their choice during afternoon clinics. These clinics are very busy and you may need to wait  to see your preferred doctor.

If You Need To Cancel

If you need to cancel an appointment please telephone the surgery as soon as possible so that we may release it to somebody else.  The practice has a policy for patients who continually miss appointments and it may lead to the patient being deducted from our register.

Missed Appointments

Missed appointments have been greatly reduced due to our current walk in morning surgery.  As a surgery we take  appointments that have been booked but not attended very seriously.  Three missed appointments in one year without prior notice or good reason may result in a patient being removed from our register.

Chaperone

If you would like a chaperone when you attend for your appointment with the doctor, please let the reception staff know.
