Over the past 7 months we have averaged 97% attendance within the practice.
If you need to cancel an appointment, please ring the surgery as soon as possible so that we can offer your appointment to someone else.
Every patient is now allocated a named GP. This may be different from the GP you usually see. This does not change the way you book appointments. It means that one GP will have overall responsibility for your care at the surgery. The practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate any requests regarding any preferences to be with a specific GP. Should you wish to know your named GP please contact Reception.
Appointments may be made via Systmonline by telephoning 01325 332022 or by calling at the surgery. Routine appointments may be made in advance (maximum six weeks), which will enable us to offer you an appointment at a time most suitable to your requirements. If you cannot keep an appointment, please inform us as soon as possible.
Please remember the GP can only deal with one problem in your appointment. If you have any other issues you wish to discuss please make another appointment.
If you are confronted by a serious problem such as severe chest pain, collapse or severe bleeding call an ambulance (tel: 999) before calling the surgery.

Under the age of 13 years parental/guardian access is permissible but due to confidentiality, once the patient reaches 13, the password will automatically expire and the child will need to apply for a new password. NB – If you are under 13 and do not wish anyone to have access to your account, please leave a message at reception for the Practice Manager.

Well Person Clinics
This clinic is run by the practice nurse for discussion and assessment of health issues.
The doctors are happy to carry out medicals, eg insurance and driving licence, by appointment. Please ask at reception for the charges for these services.
If you are aged 40-74 years you will be offered for a health check to assess your risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
If possible, please make an appointment at least eight weeks in advance of your holiday to ensure adequate cover. A charge will be made for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS. A list of these is held at reception.
An influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients over 65 or those suffering from a long term condition such as heart disease, chronic respiratory disease, renal disease, diabetes, chronic liver disease, or patients on disease-modifying drugs, carers, and residents of nursing and residential homes. Please contact the reception staff in September for details of the vaccination dates and to make an appointment. If you are unable to attend the surgery, a home visit will be arranged.
From time to time the doctors and nurses have student doctors and student nurses sitting in with them during their consultations with patients. Patients will be made aware when this is the case and if they would prefer to see the doctor or nurse alone the reception staff will arrange this.
Darlington's Citizens' Advice Bureau
