Welcome to Temple Hill Surgery Online
Extra appointments are available for patients in the evenings, at weekends and on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and over New Year.
If you need to see a GP urgently and can’t get an appointment in our usual surgery hours, please call 111 and ask to book a GP appointment. Alternatively, you can visit the walk-in centre at the White Horse GP surgery in Vale Road, Northfleet which is open from 8am to 8pm every day of the year except Christmas Day (and Easter Sunday).
The extra GP appointments are designed to help relieve the pressure on A&E and out of hours GP services over the festive period.
Not all GPs will be open in the evenings, on the Bank Holidays and at weekends – but those which are will be able to see patients registered at any practice.
The NHS is under unprecedented pressure locally and nationally with many people going to A&E when they could get care elsewhere. Help us to help you use the NHS wisely by calling 111 to speak to a call handler who can advise you where you can see a doctor, and if appropriate will redirect you to other NHS services.
The additional GP capacity in Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley will run from 22 December to 8 January.

From 18th April 2017 repeat prescription requests will be processed by the NHS Prescription Ordering Direct Service and the practice will no longer take requests for repeat medication from your pharmacy. You will need to phone the POD service on 0300 131 1100 to order your medicines instead of phoning or visiting your pharmacy to make an order. The POD will arrange for your prescription to be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice and dispenced as normal.
This is a pilot service being run by DGS & Swale CCG's for 12 months, alongside other GP practices. This will help to deliver improved care to patients and reduce medicines waste. The CCG, on behalf of the practice, will process your personal data (with your consent) in order to review and manage your repest prescription.

Named Accountable GP
From 1st April 2015 the GP Contract, held with NHS England, requires GP practices to allocate a Named GP to every patient.
This is to inform you that Temple Hill Surgery has met this requirement and all patients have been allocated a Named GP.
If you wish to know who your Named GP is please contact Reception.
PLEASE NOTE: There is no requirement for you to see your Named GP, you can still choose to see any Doctor or Nurse in the practice.
We would like our patients to know that we are a training practice. This means that the surgery will be involved in hosting and training fully qualified hospital doctors seeking to gain experience in General Practice. You may be offered an appointment with one of these doctors or see them sitting in with our regular clinicians. Although gaining General Practice experience, you can expect the same quality of care as you would normally. If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
