Welcome to our Practice Website
Welcome to the new website for Hawkinge and Elham Valley Practice We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our contact function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
The practice works from two centres, in Hawkinge and Elham. We cover the villages and surrounding area. We have special interests in family planning, minor surgery, diabetes, respiratory, heart disease and much more. We are very fortunate to have excellent staff who are all friendly, efficient and helpful and create a caring framework within which we work and see our patients.
We have well-equipped, fully computerised surgeries and are registered under the Data Protection Act.
Appointments 7 Days of the Week
As part of a group of Folkestone practices we are able to offer appointments from 10:00 to 20:00 seven days a week. We still operate from the surgery during our core hours (08:30 to 18:30), but there is also a GP based at the Royal Victoria Hospital who will see patients from 10:00 to 20:00 for any acute (new/urgent) problems. Full access to your medical records is available to the GP in the Royal Victoria Hospital and they are able to refer and prescribe medication. These appointments are booked via the surgery either by calling the practice or visiting the practice in person.
Please note that the practice will still close at 18:30 but we can pre-book you appointments at the Royal Victoria Hospital during our normal working hours.
Please note that, for reasons of Patient Confidentiality, we withhold our telephone number when making outgoing calls. If your phone is set up to reject "number withheld" calls, we will not be able to contact you by phone unless you give us an alternative number.
