Edenbridge Memorial Health Centre

A new health and wellbeing centre – Edenbridge Memorial Health Centre – opened in Edenbridge in November 2023, providing intermediate care, general practice and outpatient services all under one roof.

The partners in this project are Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust, Edenbridge Medical Practice and Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group (formerly West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group). Edenbridge Town Council has been very supportive of this scheme and awarded £200,000 of CIL money towards the project.

The development provides a 2,180 square metre of clinical and community space, along with parking and landscaping. Services include a GP practice, outpatient services, minor injury unit, x-ray services, therapies and social prescribing.

The centre is also home to Sevenoaks District Council’s One You health improvement service.

One You advisors Amanda and Natalie are based on site throughout the week setting up and running a weight management evening programme as well as holding clinics and consultations for any resident wishing to improve their health and lifestyle.

Their service can help you to:

  • Lose weight
  • Improve your diet
  • Increase your physical activity
  • Improve your mental wellbeing
  • Reduce your alcohol and vape consumption and much more.

One You is a completely free, 12-week programme involving weekly meetings with confidential, one-to-one sessions. The practical and personal support available will help you feel motivated to change your behaviour for good. As well in person appointments, online support is available.

If you’re overweight, losing just 5% of your weight can reduce the risk of several diseases such as heart disease, colon and breast cancer and type 2 diabetes. It will also lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, reduce stress on your joints, improve your breathing, reduce fatigue and help you sleep better. If you’re ready to lose weight and improve your health, One You can help.
