Welcome to the website for
The Oaks Surgery
We are an NHS general practice providing services to the community of Swanley and surrounding villages. We hope you will find the surgery welcoming and helpful, and welcome any suggestions for improving the service or this website. Please use the Contact us form
We'd like to contact you!
We are hoping to use texts and emails increasingly to contact you instead of letters. Please could you ensure we have your current contact details. If you do not want us to contact you in this way please let us know and we will amend your record appropriately
We are now taking bookings for our flu clinics which will be held on Saturday mornings of 19.9, 26.9, 17.10 and 24.10.15 and the evening of Tuesday 22.9.15. Please ring 668833 or 668775 to make an appointment
Dr. Pomeroy is leaving
Dr Pomeroy will be leaving The Oaks after 32 years of service to the population of Swanley. We would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his hard work, dedication and loyalty to our patients and the practice.
Dr Naana Smart will be taking over care of his patients from 3 August 2015. As a patient of Dr Pomeroy your registration will be automatically transferred to Dr Smart, so you don’t need to worry about re-registering. Many of you already know Dr Smart who has worked at the surgery previously and we are sure that you will build a strong trusting relationship with Dr Smart.
Online booking of appointments and repeat prescribing through Vision online is now live. To register please download the registration form from this website or collect from reception. You will need to provide proof of address and ID.
Repeat prescription ordering is now through Visiononline. You can continue to use the Prescription request form on this website for non-repeat items but will need to provide additional information for each drug requested.
It is also possible to view a summary of your records if you choose to enable this on registration. Currently it is only possible to view allergy and prescription records, but it is planned to expand this to include a summary of your test results and medical history in future.

Pharmacy requests for non-repeat prescriptions
There have been problems with local pharmacies requesting medication for patients that are not on their repeat prescription list without any information on why the medication is required. This is potentially unsafe. With effect from 1st December we will not accept requests from pharmacies for medications not on repeat prescription. Please contact the surgery direct for any such requests or complete the online Prescription request form
Funding has recently been withdrawn for GP minor surgery cosmetic procedures such as removal of moles where there is no suspicion of cancer. Regrettably this will greatly curtail the service we have been providing. We can still remove lesions where there is repeated infection or bleeding and we would still encourage you to see us if there has been any change in an existing mole
