Info for health professionals
We are delighted to have become an approved host for Consultant-led Clinics (CLCs) in East Kent. This means that instead of referring patients from your GP practice to local hospitals you can now refer them to the following consultant-led clinics at Wye Surgery near Ashford:
> General Surgery
All our CLCs are led by consultants from the following hospitals:
- William Harvey Hospital (Ashford)
- Chaucer Hospital (Canterbury)
- St. Saviours Hospital (Hythe).
At Wye Surgery your patients will have their initial outpatient assessment and their follow-up appointments 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.
