Welcome to St John's Medical practice website where we hope you will quickly benefit from a user friendly layout and a wealth of information about our healthcare services. Find out when we’re open and what to do when we’re not, all from the comfort of your own home.
We are a well established practice covering the Sevenoaks area. Our GP's, nurses, and support staff are all committed to providing high quality Primary Care Services, working with you to maintain and improve your health.
ATTENTION ALL NEW PATIENTS WISHING TO REGISTER WITH ST. JOHNS
Unfortunately, due to a reduction in the number of whole time equivalent GPs available, it has been decided that it is not possible to accept new patients. This is a temporary measure and is designed to protect the quality of the service offered to existing patients and to protect the well being of the staff. We are trying to recruit more clinical staff and hope to open our list again shortly.
There are exceptions to this decision not to accept new patients which are as follows:
- new babies
- residents entering Gloucester House Nursing Home
- any visiting relative or friend at the same address of an existing patient may be treated for an acute illness as a temporary resident
If you have just moved to the area and have a mobility problem, please write to the Practice Manager.
The surgeries nearest St. Johns accepting new patients are:
- Town Medical Centre
- South Park Surgery

Sharing Patient Information
NHS Summary Care Record
A Summary Care Record will give Healthcare Staff important information about medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions you have had to medicines. It will also include your name, date of birth and unique NHS number.
Giving Healthcare Staff access to this information can prevent mistakes being made when caring for you in an emergency or when your GP Practice is closed.
The Surgery plans to go 'live' on Summary Care uploads in February 2015. If you wish to opt out you need to click the link onthe right handside (5) to see the download link for the opt out form and return this to the practice as soon as possible
