Closure of GP walk-in service at White Horse Posted on 13 Jul 2020

Closure of GP walk-in service at White Horse

Patients are advised that the walk-in GP service at White Horse, Northfleet, ended on 30 June 2020.  This is the first step towards implementing a linked urgent treatment centre at Gravesham Community Hospital and Darent Valley Hospital, following a public consultation last year, in line with the Government's Long Term Plan.  In taking that decision, it was also agreed at that time that the contract held with Fleet Healthcare to provide the walk-in GP service would not be extended when it expired on 30 June 2020.

Patients who need to urgently see a GP should contact us and we will do our best to offer an on-the-day appointment if clinically needed.  You may be asked to visit another local surgery for your appointment.  Alternatively, you can call NHS 111 for advice and direction to the nearest available service where appropriate.

The Minor Injury Unit at Gravesham Community Hospital, Gravesend, remains open for urgent minor injuries and some minor illnesses.  For life-threatening conditions, call 999.

Further information is available on the NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group website.
