The rollout will take time, & people will be called when the service is ready. Please don’t call your GP, hospital or pharmacy –
this will delay care for people who are unwell & seeking help.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.
Your GP practice is open and if you need to see your GP, please ring us on 01207 583400 or visit our website – our opening ours are 08:30am- 5:30pm Monday- Friday. Please note our telephone line is shut between 12pm - 12:30pm daily.
Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.
Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone. If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.
Please can we remind all of our patients to only attend the surgery if you have an appointment. If you have any queries and need to speak to a member of our reception team, please call us on 01207 583400 or you can put in an E-Consult via the website and a member of the team will get back to you. Please DO NOT attend the surgery for general queries. We really appreciate your co-operation during this time. Thank you.
Our highest priority at Consett Medical Centre is our patients health and well-being. To protect other patients and our staff, so we are able to continue working during the coronavirus pandemic, we have been advised to make changes to our appointments system:
Anyone with a fever, new continuous cough (even if mild) or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste in the past 7 days, OR a household contact with new continuous cough or fever in the past 14 days must NOT attend the surgery unless advised otherwise by the practice.
If you have symptoms and they are mild then stay home and follow NHS online guidance.
Anyone with cough or fever who is unwell please contact 111 online/111 by phone/999.
We are trying to provide as much care as possible remotely through e-consultations, telephone, video, and text messaging.
All patients who need to be seen in the surgery will be screened by telephone or text beforehand or as you enter the building
Please avoid attending the surgery in person unless you have been asked to attend.
Prescriptions and fit notes can be requested online.
This a difficult and worrying time for us all and we are constantly updating our procedures in line with national recommendations. We appreciate your patience at this difficult time.
