Covid-19 Safety Measures- Face Masks
All patients that have been advised to attend the surgery must now wear a face mask or covering when attending.
Failure to do so, especially in relation to face to face appointments may result in the clinician not seeing you.
This is following guidance from the BMA (British Medical Association) in relation to government advice that the public will be required to wear face masks on public transport from the 15th June. The BMA have advocated the wearing of face coverings in areas where they cannot socially distance.
Please note face coverings are not a replacement for social distancing and regular hand washing which remain the most important actions
We would like to thank all patients during these uncertain and difficult times.

From 1 April 2017, NHS South Tees Clinical Commissioning Group will introduce a number of changes to urgent care to make it easier and more convenient for patients living across Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland to access GP appointments seven days a week .
Four extended hours GP centres will be open from 6pm to 9.30pm, Mondays to Fridays, and 8am to 9.30pm on weekends and Bank Holidays and will be based at:
- North Ormesby Health Village
- Redcar Primary Care Hospital
- East Cleveland Hospital in Brotton
How do people access one of the new GP centres?
The centres operate an appointment based system – people won’t be able to just walk-in – but having access to them means you will be offered a choice of where to go and an appointment time which may be better for you. It also means that you are seen promptly and shouldn’t have to wait in a queue.
The service will be operated by local doctors and nurses from the South Tees area with access to your patient records.
There are a number of ways to make an appointment:
- Telephone your own GP surgery which has access to appointments in the extended hours GP centres.
- Your own surgery will always try to meet your needs first but if you require an appointment urgently and they can’t fit you in – or if it is more convenient for you to be seen in the evening or at the weekend, they will make an appointment for you at one of the centres.
- Telephone NHS 111 (free phone number) – NHS 111 has access to appointments in normal hours or in the extended hours GP centres. If you need to be seen, they will be able to make you an appointment.
- Access online – http://www.starappointment.co.uk/booking/
What if I have an urgent need after 9.30pm when the GP centres are closed?
Patients should call 111 and they will be directed to the most appropriate service.
Will there be other changes to existing services?
The introduction of the new extended hours GP centres also mean there will be changes to:
Redcar Minor Injury Unit opening times
Minor injury units (MIU) can assess and treat: minor burns, scalds, infected wounds, sprains, cuts, grazes and possible broken bones. Patients with a minor injury can still go to Redcar Primary Care Hospital but from 1 April the opening times will changed to 8am, to 9.30pm, seven days a week (including access to x-ray).

Existing walk-in centres
The Walk-in Centres at North Ormesby (part of Resolution Health Centre) and Eston Grange have now closed.
If patients are not registered to a GP in the area, you can find your nearest NHS doctors by visiting NHS Choices.
