CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19
We are now triaging all GP and Nurse Practitioner appointment requests by telephone. The clinician will speak to you and then decide how best to deal with your problem. If needed you will then be seen face to face.
Please use e-consult as much as you can most of the time you get a reply the same day.
Do NOT attend routine nurse appointments if you have Coronavirus symptoms.
- We are still open to collect prescriptions and paperwork.
- If you have to stay at home because of Cornavirus and you need a note for your employer you can get one online here : https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/
We are taking these measures to protect our patients and staff.
Following extensive trials, the first safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine has been approved in the UK and is now available to priority groups.
Vaccinations are being delivered according to priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation. The vaccinations will not take place at your GP practice, but rather a local vaccination service (led by GPs, practice nurses and community pharmacists) who are responsible for delivering the vaccine to people in your community.
When it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination, you will receive an invitation to come forward. This may be via the phone, or through a letter either from your GP or the national booking system.
We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but we are asking people not to contact us to get an appointment, as you will not be able to get one until you are contacted.
If you have been contacted, you must book an appointment by using the following link: https://darlington.nhsvaccinations.co.uk (link opens in a new window).
