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.

Data Protection

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) update

This Regulation will replace current data privacy law and will give more rights to patients of Canterbury Medical Practice as individuals and more obligations to the Practice about holding personal data. One of these rights is a right to be informed, which means that Canterbury Medical Practice will give its patients more information than presently about the way in which it uses shares and stores personal information.

GDPR and Data Breaches:
