Water damage has forced a GP practice to shut down.
Greensand Health Centre, Boughton Lane in Loose is expected to open after the new year.
The announcement says that the company made a “difficult” decision to close down the building temporarily while “drying and re-instatement works are complete”.
The statement read: “Due to the heavy workloads of contractors, we expect that the work will take several months. We do not anticipate being able to open at Loose until the new year at the earliest.
All appointments will be cancelled at this location as of the evening on Wednesday, November 8.
There is a branch of the centre in Heath Road in Linton as well as one in Loose.
Pre-booked patients will receive a call and they may be required to go to the alternative surgery.
The service of prescriptions and reception will continue to be provided until the major repair work begins.
Registered users can continue to post their prescriptions into the wall-mounted boxes. These will be collected each day and processed in the normal way. Samples must be brought to Linton Surgery.
The notice continued, “We understand that this temporary closing is not ideal for patients. But unfortunately, as everyone knows, it is necessary for safety reasons, in both terms of health and safety and clinical.
We hope that by closing down the building, the work can be finished faster and we will be able to open as quickly as possible.
We will keep you updated on the status of our work and the date we plan to open this branch.
We will take advantage of this time to invest heavily in the premises, so that when we reopen it will be a vastly improved practice.
Greensand Health Centre suggests that those without a driving license should contact Involve, a charity and Kent County Council to arrange for transport.
Patients can also receive telephone consultations.
