SAMs now has the capability to accept card payments where payment is required for any additional services. Over the next 2 months we will be phasing out accepting cheques and cash.

The July  DNA are disappointing! The number of patients who DNA has remained unchanged this month to GP 22 appointments (3.6 hours - down 3 hours), Nurse Practioner 12 appointments (2 hours - no change), Nurse 30 appointments (7.6 hours - up 1.2 hours) and HCA 51 appointments (8.5 hours - up 2 hours). This means wasted appointments equivalent to almost 3 full days of clinical time lost, less availability for other patients and poor use of clinical staff time. 



This practice along with all other practices in Ashford and Canterbury CCG areas closes on a limited number of days each year to allow for all staff to have mandated and approved training. This allows the staff to continue to deliver the most up to date and high quality service to patients.

When SAMs is closed, clinical cover is provided by the Out Of Hours service and patients should call 111 for advice and help for their normal GP enquiries.

SAMs will be closed on the following dates:
