Telephones

 

It has been bought to our attention that it sometimes takes ages to get through to speak to Reception and that when given the information about were you are in the queue it is not always accurate and you seem to be waiting ages.   We can only apologise for the frustration this may cause.

 

We have investigated this with our telephone company who have agreed the look into this more thoroughly if we give them the details on the day it happened.  So could I please ask that if you have waited ages to be answered please inform the receptionist who have been instructed to pass onto our Practice Manager and her Assistant the day and time.

 

Once again our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.

The Orchard Practice

The Orchard Practice moved from a house in Dartford into a purpose-built Health Centre, along with three other practices in the early part of the 1980s, all using the ground floor of the building.

disabilityWheelchair access to the building is through the main door. 

A disabled patients' WC is provided alongside the waiting area and access to the first floor can be reached by a lift, just inside the main front door.

The practice is part of the West Kent Primary Care Trust, which is part of the NHS.

Training Practice

Our practice is a training/teaching practice. Our registrars are fully qualified and have a great deal of hospital experience. Registrars are attached to our practice for 12 months after which time they may become a partner in a practice.  They are at all times encouraged to seek advice when required from the practice partners.

When booking an appointment you may be asked if you would consult with one of our registrars who are excellent doctors, appointed by the practice.

Our  GP trainer is Dr King.
