Urgently need to see a GP when your practice is closed?
The out of hours GP service provides advice, information and treatment for patients who cannot wait until their practice re-opens.
It is open Monday to Friday from 6.30pm to 8am and for 24 hours at weekends and bank holidays.
To use the service, dial 111. The trained advisors at NHS 111 will arrange for you to speak to or see a doctor if you need to.
From 1 September 2018, the out-of-hours doctors are based at Maidstone Hospital, and Tunbridge Wells Hospital.
You can also call 111 for advice if you need urgent medical help, and are not sure what to do.
NHS 111 – when it is less urgent than a 999 emergency.
