Garlinge GP surgery will reopen next week

Garlinge Surgery

The Garlinge GP surgery will be reopen and be operating as normal from Monday (July 30).

The Canterbury Road surgery, which is run by The Limes Medical Centre,  was closed on July 24 due to extreme temperatures.

A Limes spokesman said the closure was due to the type of building used at the Garlinge branch and the heat. The inside of the temporary buildings were recording 31c and surgery bosses said this was too hot for both the patients and staff.

The spokesman has now confirmed the reopening, adding: “Monitoring the weather forecast, we will be operating our normal hours and surgeries from Monday.

“We would like to thank all our patients for their understanding of any inconvenience caused during the extreme weather conditions. The health and safety of our patients and staff has been our highest concern during this period. “
