Welcome to the Maritime Health Partnership. We have been providing GP Services in Medway since 2009. We're looking forward to delivering the next chapter from the 1st November 2021.

Who we are

We are a GP-led primary care partnership with traditional values, but with a modern and progressive approach.

We have a wide and diverse multi-disciplinary team with areas of expertise and specialty to ensure a good holistic approach that will improve long term health outcomes.

In our strive for quality improvement in population health management, we have a strong focus on patient education, health promotion and encourage self-care, whenever possible.

What We do

We have been delivering quality services in Medway since 2009 and have a strong understanding of the health needs of this diverse population. Our current practices are at The Halfway Surgery (Chatham) & St Mary's Medical Centre (Strood).
