We welcome all young people to our Practice and our mission is to help you stay physically and emotionally healthy.

Moving away to University but wishing to remain registered at Whitstable Medical Practice? … This is now possible as we are able to accept ‘out of area’ registrations providing certain criteria is met. You will still be able to be seen by a GP practice near your university should the need arise! Please click here for more information or contact a Patient Coordinator.
