NEW: Information for patients on COVID-19 testing, symptoms and visiting the surgery.
With more and more cases in the area, we at the practice thought it would be helpful to go over advice regarding Covid symptoms and testing and also bust a few ‘myths’.
COVID VACCINES!!! When it is your turn to be vaccinated we will be in touch. Please make sure we have your up to date telephone numbers for our records. If you need to change your telephone number please email our generic email
If you are a veteran please let the receptionists know so that we can add it to your records. Please speak to Lesley Lee with any queries.
We have online appointment availability - please ask the reception team to register you.
Extended Hours are provided by all GP Surgeries in Derwentside evenings and weekends - please ask the receptionist for information or to arrange an appointment for you.
If you wish to order your prescription online please register on this website, if you are not registered please ask the receptionist to register you. We also have the availability of Electronic Prescribing Service, whereby you register with a chemist of your choice and your prescription is automatically sent directly to them. Please ask the receptionist for details of this service. We would be most grateful if you could complete our Friends and Family test either in the surgery or on this website.
We provide extended hours at both surgeries from 7.30 to 8am on Mondays at West Road, Annfield Plain and 7.30 to 8am on Thursday at our Louisa Surgery in Stanley.
Every patient on our list now has a named GP however your are still able to see the GP of your choice.
