Wednesday 23rd October, 2-6:30pm, for ANYONE aged 18-65 AND ANYONE AGED OVER 65 WHO HAS NOT YET BEEN IMMUNISED

We strongly encourage anyone in these groups to be immunised:

- pregnant women

- A carer for an elderly or disabled person
- children and adults with weakened immune systems
We are pleased to announce that following the inspection on March 14th and all the data checking, the Care Quality Commission have rated the practice as “Outstanding”. We had special mention for being exceptionally “Caring” and “Well-Led”. The 3 page report and the 35 page evidence table can be seen on their website by following link in the top right corner of each webpage. Many thanks to all team members past and present as well as the PRG, the Friends of Marden Medical Centre and the patients who have supported us.
We are sad to see the departure of Marianne Hamlyn on May 17th. She has worked so tirelessly and enthusiastically for the practice but is moving to East Kent for family reasons. We wish her luck in her new job in Dover. Happily we have recruited Alison Tinsley who has worked for many years in a Maidstone practice. She will offer a full range of nursing skills as well as doing Asthma checks and Diabetes reviews.
Dr Jonathan Wentzel
We are pleased to announce that Dr Jonathan Wentzel has joined the team on the 1st May. He has worked for 21 years in a busy practice in Maidstone as well as being a GP Trainer and Appraiser. He will have surgeries on Monday Tuesday and Thursday.
