When We Are Closed

closedWhen the surgery is closed, please call 111.   

NHS 111

In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

Conflicts of Interest

As you are probably aware the NHS is changing and GPs and Patients are being encouraged to work together to redesign services and pathways to allow more cost effective care, close to home.

This brief note is to ensure you are clear that this has produced a potential conflict of interest where Canterbury Medical Practice sometimes needs to take on the role of both referrer and provider. As a result they have a commercial interest in the provision of such services e.g. Cardiology Service

All consultants and referrals will continue to prioritise the best interests of the patients; including any discussion around choice of providers. Any financial interest there may be in an organisation providing healthcare will not influence the way our clinicians prescribe, treat or refer.
