The doctors and staff at Sydenham House Medical Centre are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.

We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.

Mission Statement

Our aim is to provide the highest quality health care available to all our patients, with a well-trained and highly motivated primary health care team.

Urgent advice: Changes Due to Staff Shortages

Due to staff shortages unfortunately we will be able to accept any To Who It May Concern letter requests or any medical reports/requests from 14th June until 1st August. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Non-urgent advice: Protected Learning Time

On a number of days throughout the year the practice is closed for Mandatory staff training and development. Whilst the practice is closed please call 111 if you are unable to wait until the following morning.

Non-urgent advice: Pharmacy First

🤒🩹 Almost all pharmacies now offer the Pharmacy First service, giving advice and, if needed, NHS medicines to treat seven common health conditions – and all without the need for a GP appointment.

Non-urgent advice: Patient Participation Group Notice

East Kent Hospitals Poster

If a GP or other healthcare professional believes you need onward care or investigations, you may be referred to secondary care services eg local hospitals. 

Unfortunately, as has been widely publicised, the wait list to see hospital consultants can be long, depending on the specialty. If there is any degree of urgency, we will always highlight this in the referral letter. However, ultimately it is up to the hospital department to triage and allocate patients on the waiting list accordingly.

Please note, we at the Surgery are powerless to chase up hospital appointments on patients' behalf. We do not have any phone numbers that are not available to the public, and to do so would take time away from caring for other patients. 

To find out about your status on hospital waiting lists, please refer to the below list of useful numbers that you can try 08:00 - 18:00 Monday to Friday, or 08:00 - 15:30 on Saturdays. Lines tend to be quieter in the evenings and at weekends.
