Wolsingham Branch Surgery

The surgery at Wolsingham will be temporarily closed from lunchtime on June 19th and is expected to reopen on Monday 25th June. The closure is to enable essential maintenance work to be carried out which cannot be done when the surgery is operational. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Our Stanhope and St John's Chapel branches remain open as normal during this week. 

Prescription Ordering Times

When We Are Closed telephone_brown

For non-emergencies outside of surgery opening hours please call 111 and 999 for emergencies.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens. 

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.  

The Practice will be closed for one afternoon each month for Staff training purposes. For dates please click on the following link Monthly Training Dates

Dates of these training afternoons will be displayed in all surgeries and local chemists.  Please contact the surgery if more information is required.

You will need to book an appointment by calling NHS 111 where you will be directed to your nearest service and will no longer be able to just turn up.

For more information please refer to the 'What to do if you are unwell' letter and leaflet that was posted out to all residents in the County Durham area or ask at reception.
