NHS Walk-In Centre: Maidstone
An NHS Walk-in Centre is sited at Maidstone Hospital and provides quick access to advice and treatment for minor ailments without having to go to your GP.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Dealing With An Emergency
Call 999 in an emergency.
A medical emergency is a situation in which the health of a person is at high risk of deteriorating rapidly without immediate medical attention.
For example, chest pains, increasing difficulty in breathing, impaired consciousness and any of the signs of a stroke (facial weakness, inability to lift a limb or slurred speech) constitute an emergency.
In a medical emergency you can access urgent paramedical help by calling 999 (or 911)
