A reduced GP service is currently operating from The Surgery in Teynham, as Dr Kumar is unwell. He is expected to return to work in the near future, however temporary arrangements are being made to ensure patients can continue to see a GP during his absence.
Patients who need a GP appointment urgently, and are unable to be seen at Teynham, can visit the walk-in centre at Sheppey Community Hospital, Plover Road, Minster On Sea, Sheerness, ME12 3LT. This is open every day from 8am to 8pm.
There are now also pre-bookable routine appointments available at other GP practices in Swale at evenings and weekends, please contact the surgery on 01795 521205 to discuss availability and to book an appointment.
In addition, nurse-led mobile units are available at Sainsbury Sittingbourne, on Mondays; Asda Sittingbourne, on Tuesdays and Thursdays; Tesco Sheerness, on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Opening hours are 9am to 1pm, and 2pm to 6pm Monday to Friday; 9am to 12pm Saturdays. Nurses are able to advise on minor ailments and conditions and there is no need to book an appointment.
If you need medical advice urgently, and the practice is closed, please call NHS 111.
