The Dame Sybil Thorndike Healthcare Centre serves part of Rochester as well as its surrounding areas. The Thorndike surgery team includes seven GPs, four experienced nurses, four health care assistants, three secretaries, practice manager and reception/administrative staff.

We offer full general practice services and run specialist clinics for asthmatics, diabetics, family planning (including coils & implants), joint injections and we offer minor surgery.

We aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence. We feel it is important you know who you are speaking to, so our practice staff wear a name badge and identify themselves on the telephone.

We are involved in training medical students and doctors in and it is possible that you might be offered an appointment to see one of them at the surgery. The registrars are fully qualified doctors who want to become general practitioners. As a training practice if we need to use your medical records for external assessments we ask for your consent.
