When We Are Closed 

The practice is part of North Durham CCG's Out-of-Hours service. This is manned by highly trained doctors and nurses (including ourselves) and provides care from 18:00 until 08:00 on Weekdays and all day Saturday and Sunday.

If you need assistance during the out-of-hours period please ring 111.

More information can be found on the NHS111 website.

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.
