DGS CCG are offering more GP appointments in Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley
We are delighted to announce that from 1 October 2018, you can book to be seen by a GP, nurse and other health professionals until 8pm Monday to Friday, and at weekends and bank holidays.
This is part of a national drive to improve access to GP services and give people the opportunity to see health professionals at a time that suits them.
The appointments won’t always be at this surgery, but your notes will be available to the GP, nurse or other health professional, providing you give your consent.
To find out more, and book one of these appointments, please contact us and speak to the receptionist, who will help you see the right person for your needs.
We will offer the new appointments routinely but please tell us if you particularly need a Saturday, Sunday or evening slot. We will also tell you where the appointment will be
Please ring NHS 111 as usual if you need medical assistance when we are closed and it cannot wait until we reopen.

White Horse Surgery participates in research activity and we work closely with the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network (NIHR CRN) for Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
Our research lead is Dr G. Asal
Research we do is used to try and find the causes of diseases and to find better treatments and services for those diseases and improve patient care– in other words to try and find better ways of looking after patients and keeping people healthy.
Patients at White Horse Surgery are involved in many studies including:
- Home BP
There are many various ways you as a patient can become involved in studies:
- A doctor or nurse may talk to you about a particular study and ask whether you would be interested in participating
- You may be sent information through the post if we feel you may be a suitable participant
- You may read information about a current study in the patient waiting room or on the surgery website and wish to take part by contacting your GP
What you need to know
All clinical research carried out is thoroughly checked and approved by ethical committees, ensuring it is appropriate and safe to perform
Your participation is entirely voluntary and can be withdrawn by yourself at any time without any explanation required.
You are under no obligation to participate in any research project.
Your care and your relationship with your doctor or nurse will not be affected in any way if you decided not to take part in a research study
You will always receive clear information about what taking part in a research study would involve. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and obtain further details about a study.
If you do agree to take part in a study you will be asked to sign a consent form. This will clearly state which parts of your notes (if any) may be looked at for the purposes of the research study. Nobody from outside this practice will be given your contact details or have access to your medical records without your prior consent.
So don’t be surprised if you are asked to take part in a study and yes, it’s okay to
ask about what studies we are involved with, or if you are interested in taking part.
