Welcome to Woodlands Health Centre

The doctors and staff at Woodlands Health Centre in Paddock Wood, Kent are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.We run many important clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations, cryotherapy clinics and well-person check-ups.

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and we value your comments and feedback.


We currently have a computer problem at East Peckham surgery which is affecting the doctors' ability to view a complete patient record. 

We hope to reopen the surgery fully as soon as it is safe to do so.

Reception staff are attending the surgery each day and can take prescription requests etc.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience this will cause but we need to ensure patient safety at all times

Changes of GPs at Woodlands

Dr Claire Lamb and Dr Deirdre McCauley have now joined the GP team at Woodlands and we welcome them to our team and are looking forward to working with them. 


We are sad to announce that Dr Karen Potterton, who has been a partner at Woodlands for seventeen years,  is to leave us in September to pursue her interests in sports medicine.  We all wish her well


We have been very fortunate to be able to appoint Dr Stef Turner who will take over the care of Dr Potterton's patients. 


On Monday morning and evening and on alternating Thursday and  Friday mornings and evenings we have extended surgeries in which doctors each cover an earlier or later surgery slot on rotation to ensure that any patients who are commuters, and are therefore unable to make an appointment during our normal surgery hours, are still able to have an appointment.

These are not able to be booked online, please request one of these appointments from the receptionist.

They run from 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM  6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
