SOUTH ASHFORD MEDICS ONLINE
South Ashford Medics is a 3 GP partnership formed in 2011.
Our aim is to provide a friendly, high quality and accessible primary care service to our patients that meets their needs and improves their health and well-being.
We will achieve this by:
Ensuring that our patients are respected as individuals and their care plan is planned with them in a holistic way to maximise their health outcomes and wellbeing.
Creating a welcoming and caring environment which is evident and experienced by our patients whenever they are in contact with the practice.
Ensuring our services are safe and that they are provided in a suitable environment with up to date equipment.
Maintaining a team of appropriately trained and skilled staff able to continuously deliver services to a high standard.
Providing sufficient capacity to meet the needs of our practice population in a timely and responsive manner which is sensitive to our different patient groups.
Embedding a culture of continuous learning and professional development in our organisation and supporting our team to attend regular training.
Making sure our practice is well led by appropriately skilled managers and clinical staff to ensure our staff feel valued and they understand their roles in delivering our services.
Contact the practice if you are due or have been contacted about having your test done.
The Practice has a new CARERS policy.
We are encouraging all Carers or patients who have Carers to contact the practice with your details so that we can update our Carers register to better support Carers and patients.
Kent and Medway Stroke Services Review
The formal public consultation on the proposals began Friday 2 February 2018.
It will run for 10 weeks until midnight on Friday 13 April 2018.
A wide range of information, including a full version and summary of the consultation document, consultation questionnaire, information on public meetings and events, some frequently asked questions, as well as detailed supporting documents about the information considered in developing the proposals, is available on the following website: www.kentandmedway.nhs.uk/stroke.
All views are important and the reviewing authority will carefully consider the responses gathered through their consultation, alongside the other evidence and information available, to inform their decision about the future shape of urgent stroke services in Kent and Medway later this year.
