West Malling Surgery Up for Sale


The West Malling GP High Street Surgery is being sold. Doctors say the property is no longer fit for purpose, and NHS cuts mean they must reduce costs. They intend to “retain a presence” in West Malling, possibly using part of the existing building, but this depends on the wishes of the buyer.  Patients will need to travel increasingly to Kings Hill and cuts in local bus services are making this difficult for those without a car. 

Trudy Dean as Chairman of the Parish Council said “ We are keen to work with the practice to help ensure doctor appointments continue to be available in West Malling and Leybourne.  However, we are dismayed about the lack of communication with residents. This surgery has existed for over 70 years, and people can combine medical appointments with shopping or visits to the Library, Post Office and other services.  We have a high number of retired people and feel it is vital to retain a surgery for the elderly, people with mobility problems, and young families.”
