Subject: Closure of walk-in GP service at White Horse, Northfleet


Good afternoon,

We are writing to keep you updated about changes to urgent care services in Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley.

We would appreciate your help in getting this message out to your networks in the communities you represent.

The walk-in GP service at White Horse, Northfleet, ends on 30 June 2020. Springhead Health Surgery (previously White Horse Surgery, Gateway Surgery and The Forge Surgery) remains open as usual.

Patients who need to urgently see a GP after 30 June 2020 are being advised to contact their regular GP practice, as an on-the-day appointment should be available if clinically needed. If they cannot get an appointment with their practice, they are advised to call NHS 111.

The minor injury unit at Gravesham Community Hospital, Gravesend, remains open for urgent minor injuries and some minor illnesses.

Our full announcement is on our website:

Keep New Ash GREEN

Help fight the Ash Place Farm development proposed by Berkeley Homes, the development for around 580 new homes (equivalent to seven new neighbourhoods in New Ash Green!)

This proposal if it goes through will take away out previous green belt, and turn the whole area into just another urban sprawl.  Our roads cannot cope now and they certainly won’t if this goes through.   The whole of New Ash Green is defined by a thick tree belt – come and see our aerial photos.  We need to preserve the setting and special character of New Ash Green.  The only way this can be done is to FIGHT THESE PROPOSALS.
