| ||Minor surgery|
Wye Surgery has its own minor operations theatre where specially trained 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’.
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.
| ||Pregnancy |
We have an experienced community midwife attached to Wye Surgery. She will be assigned to you throughout your pregnancy providing full ante-natal care and advice. Wherever possible, she will also be involved in your labour and baby’s delivery.
6 weeks after baby is born, your GP will carry out a post-natal examination of you and your child (we’ll remind you to book this after the birth). To make an appointment please contact our reception.
See Pregnancy & Family in our Self Help section.

This clinic is for patients who need to take warfarin (blood thinning medication) on a regular basis.
