About Wye Outpatient Clinics
Info for health professionals
Wye Surgery is an approved host for the following NHS Outpatient Clinics in East Kent:
> Aural Care Microsuction
> General Surgery
Wye Outpatient Clinics are not just for patients of Wye Surgery - they are also open to patients referred by any NHS GP Surgery in East Kent.
Being seen in our local community setting, instead of at a hospital, is not just more pleasant and relaxing for patients it also means they will be seen by the same consultant both for their initial assessment and any follow up appointments. This is a level of service that busy NHS hospitals simply cannot guarantee.
Who your patients will see
Aural Care Microsuction Clinic: This is led by a highly experienced Consultant Nurse.
Other Outpatient Clinics: These are led by Consultant Doctors from the following hospitals:
- William Harvey Hospital (Ashford)
- Chaucer Hospital (Canterbury)
- St. Saviours Hospital (Hythe).
At Wye Outpatients your patients will be seen in a modern community setting. Our convenient and welcoming health centre, with its dispensing pharmacy and fully equipped medical suites, provides a reassuring alternative to the often intimidating and impersonal environment of a busy hospital.
We also offer patients plenty of free parking right outside the door, plus a comfortable waiting room and easy wheel-chair access.
