Welcome to Welling Medical Practice
Book on the day Appointments
There will be a few appointments available each day, which are released throughout the day by the reception staff. These are not available to be booked before the day. So if you ring from 8am or come to the surgery in person before 8am, you will have to wait for these appointments to be released. This does not guarantee you will receive an appointment for that day.

Patients to be careful of receiving text messages asking for personal information to be sent, as this is a scam. Please do not respond to these text messages sharing your personal details. Cervical screen reminders and appointment reminders do not request your personal information, so these would be correct.
Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19 we ask that you kindly register electronically with your local pharmacy, this will reduce the risk for patients and staff.
We thank you for your understanding.
Advice for parents during coronavirus
Whilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it is likely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself.
