Westgate Surgery Philosophy of Care
All patients have a named accountable GP, this is the GP you are registered with and they are responsible for your care at the practice. If you do not know who this is please ask our reception team.

Which service should I use if I need urgent advice?
Health Help Now
The NHS in Kent and Medway has a free website and app to help you find the right treatment, especially when you are not sure what to do or who to contact.
Whether you have a baby with a high temperature, a child who is being sick, a teenager who is feeling low or you have sprained your ankle and for many other health problems, the Health Help Now web app can guide you to the service that will help you best.
New features available on the Apple and Android versions include a health wallet, where users can make notes about symptoms or questions they may need to ask a GP, keep a list of health appointments and contacts, save favourite pages from Health Help Now and view other useful apps.
Health Help Now lists common symptoms for people of all ages and helps you find the best place for treatment for them in the local area. It shows the nearest services, whether they are open or closed, and provides a map of their location and directions.
Health Help Now also offers reliable health advice and links to other useful websites. Available at www.healthhelpnow-nhs.net, it works on smartphones, tablets, and computers. To find the downloadable apps, just search Health Help Now at the Apple Store and the Android Google Play Store.
Why not download it to your device now so you have it to hand when you need it?
If you don’t have internet access, or if you need medical help fast but it isn’t a 999 emergency, dial 111.
