Welcome to the Bearsted Medical Practice

The practice has been held since 1750. Founded by Mr Thomas Weekes in Eyhorne House in Hollingbourne. He instructed trainee apothecaries and provided care for  his patients for 29 years. We are still a training practice for both doctors and medical students. After 200 years the practice moved to Bearsted, initially at "The Limes" on Bearsted Green, and then moving to Yeoman Lane in 1973. The initial premises were built to accommodate 3 doctors. This was extended in 1982 and 1989 to accommodate 5 partners and a trainee GP. We moved into our current surgery premises with 9 consulting rooms in April 2005.

We have eight GP partners either full or part time. We employ a practice manager, 4 practice nurses and 4 health care assistants. We are an active GP training practice and currently have 3 GP registrars.



We will be shut on Christmas Day (25th December), 28th December and 1st January.  Other than these 3 days, we will be open as normal.


We would urge you to book an appointment for a flu vaccination if you in one of the ‘at risk’ groups including children aged 2,3 or 4 (as of 31st August 2015) or if you are over 65yrs.  Please ring reception to book your appointment.
