In order to maintain a manageable workload and to safeguard the care we provide to our existing patients, Thames Avenue Surgery have taken the decision to manage our patient list size in such a way that we are only accepting newborn babies, or patients who are living with other members of a household who are existing patients with us.
For all patients either new to the area, or wishing to move to a different GP surgery, they should contact the West Kent CCG Patient Allocations Team directly as follows:-
Telephone: 01622 228393
If you are allocated our practice, you will be provided with a letter to bring to the surgery. You will then be able to register by completing a GMS1 Form.
All new patients are required to complete a new patient health questionnaire and ethnic origin form and are invited to make an appointment with Angela or Vicky, our Healthcare Assistants. This will give us an opportunity to meet you and to obtain important information about any past and on-going health problems.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Please let us know if you change your address/telephone number as soon as possible so that we can keep our records up to date. If you move outside the practice area, you will need to register with a new doctor. If you are in doubt, please ask at Reception.
