Face masks / Facial coverings

Face masks / Facial coverings are now Mandatory in most public areas. We understand some patients will be anxious about wearing a mask especially if you have breathing difficulties.

Practices are reporting increases in requests from patients for letters of exemption to wearing face masks in various public settings.

In England, you must by law wear a face covering on public transport and in shops and supermarkets as of 24 July 2020.

The Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption. It should be sufficient for someone to declare that they are eligible for an exemption direct with the person questioning them (eg bus driver).

Practices are therefore not required to provide letters of support for those who fall under the list of exemptions, or to those who do not fall under the list of exemptions.

Some transport providers are providing evidence of exemptions themselves, see for example this information from First Bus and Arriva.

The prescription Ordering Direct (POD) service across Kent and Medway is closing on 31st January 2022

Since the service began, more efficient technology has been developed that allows patients to order their medicines securely online via the NHS APP or other NHS login supported platforms.

GP Trainees

We are training practice and have GP trainees who can also deal with your health needs and provide advice.

The trainees, as part of their training may make video recordings of some of their consultations and use it as a teaching tool to improve and enhance their learning. As a result you may be asked for your permission and written consent to video your consultation with one of the trainees. You have the right to decline and any refusal will have no implications on the way you are treated or which doctor you see.

We believe that involvement in the education and training of future GPs will be beneficial for the practice as a whole and for the future.
