with a GP who
will book theatre space for you
here at Wye Surgery.
We have our own minor operations theatre here at Wye Surgery where all our doctors can perform surgical procedures using local anaesthetic.
Typically, this would include things such as removing moles, fatty lumps and cysts.
Dr. Miles and Dr. Fox both have a special interest in minor surgery, and offer appointments to both registered and non-registered patients, under the ‘Minor Surgery in East Kent Scheme’.
| || || Physiotherapy || |
The purpose of physiotherapy is to help patients improve their mobility and body strength, particularly after an operation, accident or illness. As well as physical therapy at Wye Surgery you may be given gentle exercises to do at home.
To find out more or make a physiotherapy appointment please contact our Reception.

Travel insurance and medical costs
Your entitlement to medical care while overseas will vary based on the country you are going to. You may have to pay for it, so it is advisable to take out travel insurance which covers medical bills and the cost of repatriation.
European Health Insurance Card
If you’re a UK resident going to a European Economic Area, apply online for a European Health Insurance Card (E-HIC, formerly known as the E111) before you go. Applications can take up to 3 weeks to process depending how you apply.
The EHIC will help you access any state-provided necessary medical treatment due to either an accident or illness within the European Economic Area (EEA). The EHIC entitles the holder to state-provided medical treatment within the country they are visiting and the service provided will be the same as received by a person covered by the country’s ‘insured’ medical scheme.
