Community nurses work alongside the practice to provide care in the home for patients whose ill health prevents them from attending the surgery.
To contact the community nurses please ring 01304 865458 and leave a message. They will respond to your call as soon as possible.
The Health Visiting team hold a Health Child Clinic every Wednesday between 12.30pm & 14.30pm at the Blossom Childrens Centre, The Downs Primary School. These clinics will offer families the opportunities to have contact with the health visiting team and receive advice and support on topics such as infant feeding, behaviour, healthy weight and sleep. In addition to that we will be providing breastfeeding drop in's every week. Within the clinic they will also be delivering parenting programmes which will cover; infant wellbeing, managing minor illness and reducing accidents, learning through play and introducing solid foods. If you wish to contact the Health Visiting team please phone: 01304 873590
We have two counsellors attached to the surgery. If you wish to see one of them you will need to be referred by your GP. Alternatively, patients may self-refer to the Dover Counselling Service (01304 204123) or to Kent Stressbusters on 01303 850674.
Sometimes we will have doctors and nurses undergoing postgraduate training here at the practice. In this regard we are subject to inspection to ensure standards are maintained. If you would rather not have a trainee present at your consultation, please say so.
We may wish to record some training consultations for doctors' use only (all recordings are disposed of later). Again if you would rather not have this done at your consultation, please say so.
