Configure Appointment Details

Appointments System

You will be registered with the practice and have a registered GP.  Patients may see any GP. We have a multi-skilled team and appointments will be booked with the most appropriate clinician. Therefore, please inform the reception team the reason for your call or please complete an e-consult which is triaged by a clinician.

We encourage patients to complete an e-consult as this is triaged by a clinician.

Our reception staff are trained to ask a series of questions - please be as co-operative as you can with this process. It is aimed at helping you get the most appropriate service to meet your needs. Our staff are all trained to offer this service and act according to our instructions and will treat any information as confidential.

Other appointments

Appointments with nursing staff and for blood tests may be booked in advance and the surgery will send links to self-book appointments where appropriate.


Test results 

Please join the  NHS app and you will be able to see your results as soon as they arrive.


Home Visits

These are usually for patients who are housebound. Please make every effort to come to the surgery if you can. If you require a home visit please phone 01322 668775 before 10.30am if possible. Your doctor may ring you prior to visiting.  We work alongside a community based paramedic home visiting team, so when home visits are arranged with the practice they are often made on our behalf by this paramedic team.

Extended Access Hubs

We provide access to other HUB sites for patients to book evening, weekend and bank holiday appointments 

Patients may book appointments with GPs in Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley.  These HUBs are located across the three areas and give patients the opportunity to have an appointment at a time to suit them. 

Appointments, until 8pm Monday to Friday, and on Saturdays at The Cedars Surgery, Sundays and bank holidays, may be booked in advance during practice opening hours.

When attending other HUBs the health professionals treating you will be able to see your full medical records, providing consent is given.  These appointments can be booked for routine appointments or urgent matters. If you need medical assistance when your practice is closed, call NHS 111.

Please ask reception for further details.  There are also sites available for phlebotomy that patients may be booked into or book themselves when we do not have availability at our daily blood clinics.  Please ask at Reception for further details.

Training Practice

We are a training practice for doctors wishing to enter general practice.

Sometimes consultations are videoed for training purposes. In this case you will be asked for your consent both before and after the consultation, which you can refuse without affecting your care. All recordings are erased after a maximum of 6 months.
