Welcome To Downs Way Medical Practice

The surgeries at Istead Rise and Shorne were opened in the late 1960s and the current practice formed in 2000 after separating from a larger four surgery practice. A new surgery at Shorne was opened in 2002, and at Istead Rise in 2007, so we have two of the best facilities in Kent. Our list includes about 7500 patients in rural Gravesham. The practice started post-graduate GP training in 2003, and the team of four doctors was joined by a First Contact Nurse Practitioner in 2006. In 2008 the team of doctors expanded to five. In April 2009, the partnership expanded to seven, with the five doctors being joined as partners by the practice manager and the nurse practitioner.

In August 2010, Downs Way Medical Practice merged with Summerhouse Medical Practice at Bexley, Summerhouse became an additional branch surgery with the patient databases being merged in November 2010. The list size, having combined, now stands at over 12,000 patients.
