HAY FEVER SYMPTOMS - with the hay fever season here you do not need to see a doctor as a pharmacist can offer you advice on how to avoid triggers and treat your hay fever. The actual treatments are available from pharmacist's from as little as £1.00 and you do not have to wait for a GP appointment.

Health care

You are invited to attend a public listening event happening across east Kent over July as part of an ongoing conversation with local people about the future of the NHS and social care. There are five events to offer you a choice of when and where is best for you. You may want to attend the one nearest you, but the various Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) wanted to let you know about the others in case one of them is more convenient.


The events will focus on the work in your Ashford CCG area to improve the range and quality of NHS services available in local communities and GP practices. There will be an opportunity to find out more about what is involved, provide your feedback and ask any questions you have about local plans. 


Ashford CCG is very keen to hear the views of local people as they work together, making the most of our partnership across health and care to work more actively  with our local communities to help people stay well. As well as providing some information on what they are doing to improve care at a local level, they want to understand people’s experiences of care to help shape the future of services.


Ashford CCG look forward to seeing anyone with an interest in health and care in their local area.  To help them manage numbers and meet any specific needs you might have such as ‘large print documents’ or having a hearing loop please sign up to an event by contacting us at
