Tunbridge Wells Covid Assessment Hub
The Tunbridge Wells group of GP Practices (Abbey Court Medical Centre, Clanricarde Medical Centre, Grosvenor & St James Medical Practice, Kingswood Surgery, Lonsdale Medical Centre, Rusthall Medical Centre, Speldhurst and Greggswood Medical Group, St Andrews Medical Centre and Waterfield House Surgery) is committed to providing the highest levels of support to their patients during the Covid-19 crisis.
Patients registered at these practices requiring medical support with suspected Covid-19 symptoms should telephone 111 or their usual GP practice. If it is suspected that they may have significant symptoms of Covid-19 and need to be seen by a clinician, they will be referred to theTunbridge Wells Covid-19 Assessment Hub which is sited at Tunbridge Wells Sports Centre St John's Rd, Tunbridge Wells, TN4 9TX with the kind permission of the owner. At the Tunbridge Wells Covid-19 Assessment Hub, patients will see a clinician in person. The clinician will then advise whether a patient needs to go to hospital or whether they are safe to go home.
Please note that a Covid-19 test will not be available.
If you have any other medical issue (not Covid-19 related) then you should telephone your usual GP practice
We would urge our patients to keep up the strong community support and solidarity that is so evident in West-Kent. We support the policy of social distancing for us all, and shielding for the more vulnerable groups, such as those over the age of 70 years and those with a long term health condition.
As GPs we are committed to providing excellent care for our patients, some of whom we have known for decades and through several generations. We want to stand with our patients at this difficult time in delivering good medical care to them throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. For advice or more information, please contact your own surgery.
