Please note, in line with the other GP surgeries in Darlington, our Econsultations service will be switched off at weekends. We have had to introduce this to help us cope with demand and capacity at the surgery. Any weekend assistance can still be sought via telephoning 111. You can still submit econsults any time from Monday 7am to Friday 6pm.
Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgeries as safe as possible for all of our patients and staff and we will continue to do so going forward.
From 19th July nothing will change at the surgery – patients will still need to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE. We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that will protect people.
In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients then we did pre-covid (face to face, by phone, by e-consult and by video), not counting vaccinating the local adult population against covid-19.
All Darlington Practices have come so far in trying to minimise the impact of covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe for all patients as we can.
Our phone lines are open 08:00-18:00 Monday to Friday
* Please note pre-booked appointments only between
07:30 and 08:30.
