Town Medical Centre was established in 1988.
Our four family doctors work with nurses, midwives, health visitors, social workers and a full team of support staff to provide a comprehensive primary care service for our 7100 patients in the Sevenoaks District.
The philosophy of our practice is based upon keeping comparatively small personal patient lists with a very favorable ratio of staff to the number of patients. In this way we aim to provide a personal service that is both friendly and efficient.
At Town Medical Centre, we are passionate about medicine and the care of our patients. We aim to make your consultation a pleasant, and hopefully, reassuring experience. Despite the very challenging environment that Primary Care currrently operates in, we believe that the most important focus of our work is the patient. We aim to have a holistic approach to each of our patients. Our GP's have different skills and interests within medicine, making us a very strong team.
