2021 Census

The census is coming. By taking part, you can help to inform decisions on services that shape your community, such as schools, doctors’ surgeries and bike lanes.

It’s important you fill in your census questionnaire because the information you share affects the life of every single person living in England and Wales.

Because these things matter to us all, everyone needs to complete the census. Do not worry, your information is protected by law. That means government officials dealing with payments or services you receive cannot see it.

Census Day is Sunday 21 March. You can fill yours in online as soon as you get your access code in the post. If your household circumstances change on Census Day, you can let The Office for National Statistics (ONS) know.

If you need help, you can visit www.census.gov.uk where there’s a wide range of support services available.

There are now temporary employment positions available. People make the census. Be part of the team. www.censusjobs.co.uk

For more information please contact your local Census Engagement Manager, Harj on Harjit.Goraya63@field.census.gov.uk

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.
