When We Are Closed
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.
